The view of the Eureka Dunes opens up. The next morning, I hiked out into the saddle on the left and to the high dune on the left, which is pictured later.
The southern end of the dune field
Along the eastern side of the dunes
Looking south from the north end
On the north end of the dunes
Driving a bit down the road to get a better perspective on the dune field from this side
My footprints and my 4Runner in left-center
The view northwest out of Eureka Valley
This'll work just fine
Last soft light
Returning at the bottom looking up to the central dune in the upper center where I shot from
Walking out into the central portion of the dunes prior to sunrise looking to the north.
The dune on the left is the one I make it to the top of pictured below, and pictured the last frame above.
So close, yet so far. Man, that final pitch was thigh-killing
Slowly ascending this painful slope
Finally at the top looking to the north to the two highest dunes
The view to the southern end
Zoomed in a bit more
Looking northwest out of Eureka Valley
Unexpected visit from an F/A-18 Hornet (I'm pretty confident I have that right) cruising at almost eye-level. This was their third and final pass around the valley while I was up on the dunes, which I was finally prepared for after hoping they'd return.
Pretty exhilarating experience for me to watch and listen to
Looking east. I parked somewhere on the right third.
Driving away from Eureka Dunes en route to Owens Valley and Lone Pine
Pit stop. Airing up the tires and fueling up.
