Panamint Range reviews
The Panamint Mountains make up a rugged range within Death Valley National Park. The range provides nice backdrop for photos within the valley for those on short visits who will be sticking to the popular sightseeing spots within the park. You can see the Panamint Mountains from popular stops such as Badwater Basin and Furnace Creek to the east of the range and from Stovepipe Wells Village just north of the mountains. You'll also see the range for quite some distance of the Panamint Valley Road west of the national park. We were able to see a bit of snow on the peaks of the Panamint Range. That was neat considering the high temperatures on the valley floor. There are some roads, hikes and old mines near the range. Unfortunately our time in Death Valley was too short to venture beyond the normal sightseeing spots within the park. A visit to the NPS website and viewing maps of Death Valley reveals how visitors can spend time exploring areas close to the range if interested.
Had about 1971 I was 9 years old and my mom's boyfriend took us to where he worked and it was a gold mine in the Panama mountains have since looked it up and cannot find it what I can remember was it had a long trolley that we had to come in on just a bucket on it wire and the second time we went we got stranded on the way up there the transmission went out and we got stranded had to write SOS in the snow with rocks and got rescued within a few days had a lot of fun at 9 years old got to blow up a big boulder good memories of Death Valley born in Trona his name was Ray if anybody has any idea of the name of this mine let me know
