After an extended holiday break, the Golden Valley Wilderness Crew arrived back in Ridgecrest on the night of January 3rd, safe and sound despite some precarious weather conditions. It would appear the Golden Coast is not immune to the snow, a fact conveniently left out of most guide books. While we all enjoyed our time home with family and friends, we awoke the next morning eager to return to the natural beauty and simplicity of the desert. Pre-hitch began as usual, making all the necessary preparations for a comfortable and productive week of work.
Once again we would be teaming up with the Owens Peak Crew, who was taking a reprieve from the chilly mountains to lend their services to our wilderness. The days were spent hauling materials and constructing an invincible fence that will surely stand until the end of time. Our nights consisted of great food, Bananagrams, the intricacies of friendship bracelet making and W.F.R. Jeopardy. Falco dominated most of these events. We were greeted each morning by a thick layer of frost on our tents, but the morning sunrise more than made up for the few minutes of discomfort.
