flash flood last summer.
Photo Credit: Mark TLaura was photographed in a tree reading, "How to Read Literature Like a Professor." A book on her school's summer reading list.
"The Death Valley in '49" to read while relaxing against a rock on Arcane Meadow between Rodgers and Bennett Peaks. It does seem odd that Manly's namesake peak, hiked it in 2002, is miles to the south and thousands of feet shorter than Arcane, Rodgers and Bennett. Although it is closer to his escape route.
Photo Credit: Mark TLaura and Lucas were the first to reach the summit. They had completed a 20 mountain challenge.

Photo Credit: Mark TI asked Mark to take a photograph looking south. Twelve years ago I was planning a traverse of the Panamint Range from Mahogany, across Telescope, Sentinel and Porter Peaks, to Redlands Canyon. Should have done it then because I don't see it happening now. Darn, because Sentinel Peak is the only summit in the range that I haven't reached. The summit register on Porter had a couple of entries by crews on helicopters from NAWS China Lake.
Second night at Mahogany Flat.
Morning at Mahogany and time to start breaking camp.
