Here are a few pics from the Eureka Sand Dunes in the northern part of Death Valley NP. Took this trip midweek before Easter. Got there by way of Big Pine, about 28 miles of pavement and 20 miles of washboard. There was a nice dust storm blowing when we arrived.

Pulled off onto some hard pack to help escape the blowing sand. Had a great view of the Last Chance Mountains.

By the next morning the wind had died to calm and the sand dunes were looking fresh.

Climbed up the dunes, not quite all the way to the very top but high enough for a great view. That's me looking small at the top with Wylie.

Great views to the south.

And to the north up Eureka Valley all the way to the White Mountains.

And back toward the east to the Last Chance Mountains.

Here are a couple shots of Wylie enjoying himself. He liked the dunes almost as much as snow.

Here are a couple extra shots from the same trip. This is from a campsite at about 7,500' near the Buttermilks west of Bishop. That is Mt. Tom (13,652') behind the camper.

And finally here is the rig after getting gas in Independence with the Sierra in the background. It is going to be a dry year unless something magical happens soon.
