Saline Valley hasn't been hard to access for many years via the main route north from SR190. It is just a long, teeth-chattering, dusty road. The Palm Springs community is like a little city lately, so the remoteness is no longer aparant. There are many destinations in the area that pose much more of a challenge to access and take real determination to achieve. Even the Lippencott road is virtually a highway nowadays, except for a few rocky spots. Death Valley has very few truly remote areas left that offer vehicle access. You have to hike awhile to get lost in this day and age. Next thing you know, Chicken Strip Airways will announce daily flights into the springs.
