The VHC is happy to return to Death Valley with Jon O. and the Early Bird hikers. I have two campsites (courtesy of Jon O!) at the Furnace Creek Campground in D.V. for Friday night and Saturday night. Max capacity is 16 people. Space is limited to two cars per campsite, but there is ample overflow parking right nearby. I will be using one of those spots for my Lance Travel travel trailer. For the rest of you, this will be tent camping.
For those of you that want to go when, and if, my two spots fill up, please make your own campsite reservations.
Important: This is superbowl sunday weekend if that is important to you.
Location of Furnace Creek Campground:
1 – A walk
2 – A longer walk
3 – 3 mile hike w/little elevation gain
4 – 5+ mile hike w/500 ft. elevation gain (heart rate increases at times)
5 – 5+ mile hike w/1000 ft. elevation gain (heart rate increasing even more at times)
6 – 7+ mile hike w/1000 ft. elevation gain
7 – 7+ mile hike w/1500 ft. elevation gain (at times you might be trying to remember how to do CPR)
8 – 5+ mile hike w/2000 ft. elevation gain (a great feeling of accomplishment when done)
9 – use your imagination
10 – I don’t lead or do these.
