Death Valley Days: 4

Started our day with a hike up the mesa behind our camp site.

There are cairns all over the park. This is one of the best I’ve ever seen.

This day got very hot very fast. Once we reached our next campground at Stovepipe Wells around noon, our energy was sapped. I had heard there were showers in the village here and was delighted to find that for just $4 we could shower AND swim in the pool…perfect! Just before sunset we headed over to the nearby sand dunes for a walk around and photo session.

We went back out onto the dunes after dark to experience them under the light of a full moon. A park ranger led a group program which taught us about the animal activities in the dunes and how to spot their tracks.
