DEATH VALLEY FIELD TRIP - March 8-10, 2024

Rescheduled for March - Join us!


 All LPA members are invited to attend a three-day weekend trip starting on Friday March 8 to Sunday March 10th in Death Valley National Park.

We will meet at 3:00 PM at Stove Pipe Wells Store before heading down to Badwater to see Lake Manly for sunset and blue hour. We will stop along the way there for a couple of other sites of interest if time allows.

Those who have not already checked into their hotel can head out to Beatty from Stove Pipe Wells to check in, grab some dinner, and meet us at Badwater at 5:00-5:30. You can also schedule a late check-in. Make sure to plan for dinner (Packed dinner or grab a bite in Beatty). After spending the evening at Badwater, we will head up to Rhyolite Ghost town near Beatty for some star trails and lightpainting. Saturday will start with sunrise at Zabriskie Point and end at Dante's View (if the road is open) with various sites of interest in-between. 

Please comment in the Comment section if you will be attending.

Please bring sunscreen, snacks, a hat and extra water. You will be responsible for the entrance fee to Death Valley National Park. Please check the weather and prepare accordingly. Rhyolite can be cold at night.

There are many campgrounds and hotels to stay in Death Valley. We recommend staying in Beatty Nevada which is about 40 minutes from Death Valley and only a few miles from the Ghost town of Rhyolite, where we will be doing late night photography and light painting.
