Requirements for Specific Locations
Racetrack Playa is 3,700 ft elevation - all other locations are near sea level.
RACETRACK PLAYA - 30 mile drive in a BUMPY 4x4 vehicle - then we park next to the Racetrack. We walk about 1/2 mile on the racetrack. There is no restroom at the racetrack.
BADWATER - 1 mile walk in - and back
ARTISTS DRIVE/PALETTE - 1/4 mile walk
MESQUITE FLAT SAND DUNES - This is the hardest walk - 1 mile walk in - on sand - 2 miles total. Note: You do not need to walk in the entire distance to shoot the dunes. We walk in so that we can find the dunes with no foot prints.
ZABRISKIE POINT - 1/4 walk up to the look out point
TWENTY MULE TEAM CANYON - Mostly shooting near the car - but we hike 20-30 yards up some of the cliffs - multiple times.
UBEHEBE CRATER - Drive to location
NOTE: WE TRAVEL WITH A GARMIN SATELLITE COMMUNICATOR,
WHICH ALLOWS US INSTANT ACCESS TO EMERGENCY SERVICES
EVEN WHEN THERE IS NO CELL SERVICE AVAILABLE.
