PANAMINT MOUNTAINS MAY 2007
PAGE ONE
Photographs by Michael Charters




This is the second of the photo galleries I am putting together from Jepson workshops back in 2007, and this was another workshop led by Dana York who was the leader of our Eureka Dunes workshop in 2005. During this workshop we camped at Mahogany Flats campground and explored areas around Hummingbird Spring, lower Wildrose Canyon, the trail up Rogers Peak and Arcane Meadow, and the Telescope Peak trail. At 11,043' Telescope Peak is the highest point in Death Valley National Park and the highest point in the Panamint Range. Most of the attendees including me only hiked part of the way to the top, but a couple of hardy souls made it all the way.
