Description

One of the highest dune fields in North America, it’s hard to describe the other worldly feeling of the Eureka Valley Sand Dunes in winter twilight. It’s a very lengthy and sometimes icy single dirt road track from Furnace Creek to this remote location, with barely a soul around once you arrive. I lamented not being here just a half hour earlier- the contrast of the sunlight hitting the dunes was just gorgeous. By the time I hiked up though, there was a pleasant after sunset diffuse glow hitting the sand and a gorgeous purple cast to the sky contrasted with the snow capped peaks of the Last Chance Range. This is a location I have definitely have to return to and camp in the tiny primitive campground at it’s base.
