Yeah we entered thru Titus canyon,(pic below) went down to Stovepipe Wells (and encountered a wicked sandstorm, it was awesome!). We camped at the end of a trail into Lemogne Canyon.
The second day, we went down to Panamint and hiked to see Darwin falls.
After that, we drove up to Saline Valley and took the Lippincott Road over to the Racetrack and camped around there. Lippincott road was pretty hairy - a few a$$-puckering spots but overall no problem for a moderately built Jeep!

When we woke up we saw the Racetrack, and drove up to Ubehebe Crater.
All of it was amazing. If you are ever even close to Death Valley spend as many days as you can and see it all.
Next time, I'm planning on running the Steel Pass road on the far west side of the park.
Heck, now we should really rename this thread to Death Valley. Ha.
