A Death Valley BackCountry 4x4 Workshop Itinerary

~Drift Through Death Valley~

a 5 Day Back Country 4x4 Experience through the Most Remote Parts of Death Valley


Certainly Death Valley isn't a new place and has been photographed for years, but most people never see most of the park. Because most of it takes hours to reach on rough mining roads. This workshop takes you there! On a 4x4 Backcountry experience! We will Convoy through the back roads and valleys of the park to explore untouched, pristine salt pans, massive mud crack playas, vast forests of Joshua Trees, and some of the tallest sand dunes around! 

We are helping attendees source capable and equipped vehicles if they do not own their own. We will be camping the entire workshop. You can camp however you'd like, in a tent, in your truck or suv, your rooftop tent, or just bivvy up under the stars, your choice! If you would like help finding a suitable vehicle, please let us know. 

Where: This workshop will be based out of Lonepine, California

When: October 22nd-27th, 2022 (5 nights)
