Death Valley Motorcycle Trip – Day 1

The best time of year to visit Death Valley is in late fall/early winter when the temperatures drop to tolerable levels, so my buddy Noah and I headed out in December of 2011 for a couple days of dual sport motorcycle riding.

We rolled out of Southern California, headed up hwy 15 and peeled off hwy 15 in Baker California heading towards Death Valley.

The hwy from Baker into Death Valley is pretty desolate, even more so in December when it’s really cold.

And hour and change later we rolled into Amargosa Junction and stopped to take a few photos next to the once famous Amargosa Opera house.

We entered into Death Valley just as the sun was setting into the deeper parts of the valley which made for some spectacular lighting.

We rolled into our destination, the small town of Beatty Nevada a short while later. Beatty is just inside the Nevada border on the eastern side of Death Valley National Park.

We unloaded our gear into our room at the Exchange club motel, one of the few motels in town. From the outside the motel looks like a bit of dump, but it’s actually pretty decent once you get inside.

After unloading our gear and grabbing some food across the street at the local greasy spoon, we returned to the motel and hit the sack planning for an early start the next day.
