BYU's senior geomorphology class embarked on an ambitious, three-day blitz trip from Provo to Death Valley. Despite the large amounts of driving, we still managed to spend several hours on dunes near Stovepipe Wells, to hike on Ubehebe Crater, and to drive all the way to Racetrack Playa. We camped in the lovely Stovepipe Wells, where lows were 75 at night. We began the trip with spectacular views from Dante's View, and hit the playas of Devil's Golfcourse and Badwater on the way out. Thanks to cloud cover during the day, optimal van and truck performance, great food, and good conversation, the trip went off nearly perfectly.
