Death Valley Day 1

Zabriskie Point

We have arrived at Furnace Creek Campgrounds!

The bus ride was long but had plenty of stops to stretch our legs. Along the way, we hiked up Emigrant Pass and found fossils of an extinct species of arthropods called trilobites. 

Afterwards, we hiked up Zabriskie Point and overlooked the hilly and mountainous terrain in the lowering sun.

Then, we arrived at the campgrounds around 4:00ish, unpacked and pitched our tents. We listened to the musically talented play instrument ambiance while waiting for dinner.

After dinner we'll have some ice breakers to get to know everyone, and then hopefully s'mores and stars before bed!
