Sandy Garden - Death Valley Dunes

I started my hike into the Death Valley Dunes at 5:45am before sunrise this morning. It was difficult to find a spot that didn't have hundred of foot prints so I could capture my image. So I hiked about 45 minutes until I found the perfect print free, razor sharp dune. However on my hike back to the car, I found this garden oasis. I just loved the 'moon' rocks among the greenery. Death Valley is an amazing place!

The best part of the day was the sunshine and warm weather. I actually put shorts on for the first time in a very long time. It was 72 degrees by 10:30am and reached a high of 78. More sunshine tomorrow and the next day and the next.....

On a side note, if you plan to make a trip here be sure to fuel up prior to your arrival. I think Death Valley may have the highest priced gas in the country. The guy on the bike has the right idea!
