Start: 02/15/2018 End:02/19/2018
Difficulty: strenuous three days of hiking, 3,000ft of elevation gain. Previous trekking experience recommend.
Join us on a nice three day trek through one Death Valley’s hidden gems. We’ll drive out to Death Valley Thursday night and camp out under the starts, then wake up early Friday and spend the day hiking to our next campground, a beautiful cotton wood grove hidden in a valley. The next day we will hike into marble canyon and camp there for the night. In the morning we will finish our trek out of the canyon and drive to the Alabama hills where we will link up with the rest of the SCO crew for basecamp. Basecamp will be a great way to unwind and play around on some big rocks. We will also win the cooking competition.
