Titus Canyon

We are at Sandy Beach County Park, in Rio Vista, after the trip from hell up I-5, from Bakersfield. the road is so bad we  left it and drove up hwy 30 for a 100 miles or so. I -5 was pretty just outside Bakersfileld.

Miles of Orchards

Every line on the road is change of level.

One of the highlights of our time in Death Valley was a trip through Red Pass and Titus Canyon. The pictures don't do it justice, Red Pass was miles of switchbacks and hair pin turns.

Titus Canyon was sheer walls and tight corners, at times the road way was only 20 ft wide, the road is one way.
It was a breath taking trip.

We are heading north tomorrow to highway 101 don't know how far we will travel.


  1. Have read others blogs saying how bad some of the California roads are. No idea how long we'll stay but if the campground fills up on the week-end we might have to make tracks out of here.

  2. Looks like a Titus Canyon trip will be in our near future.....

    You will love Lone Pine! $5.00/nght. dumpster, water, firepits, picnic table, pit toilet. $2.50 for us as I have the America The Beautiful Pass.
