  2. Hi CE,

    When I click on the NPS link, their website returns this text:

    “We’re sorry, an error has occurred. We should have this resolved shortly.”

    We’ll see what develops. Perhaps that page has been taken down temporarily. In the meantime, try this link:

    It is the parent link to the one that is not working currently.

    On March 31 we entered Saline Valley via South Pass in a 2008 2WD Toyota RAV4. The road was pretty rough in spots but we had no issues other than a few scrapes. We left the Valley on April 2 via North Pass, which was much easier.
