Death Valley Day #2

Got up at 4:30 am. woke up to coyotes howling in distance. Had a breakfast scramble with 6 eggs.

Hike up Fall Canyon. Loved the narrows.

Was like a cathedral and Richard Serra sculpture although those are probably trying to approproximate the canyons.

Mabel made it up a tough bypass around a dry waterfall.

Was a real climb by itself.

Had enough daylight to see the Mesquite dunes on the way back.

Paid for showers ($5 per person) at Death Valley Ranch in Furnace creek.
Pasta for dinner. Fire was especially warm.

60 degrees around dinner. Daytime was high 70s but was in the shade in the canyon for most of day. O/n 40s.
