DEATH VALLEY CAR CAMP TO TELESCOPE PEAK: 09/22/2017 - 09/24/2017
 Death Valley camping in September! Are we Crazy? NO! Join us on camping adventure as we camp at an elevation of 4000 ft in the mountains above Death Valley National Park on Friday evening (the days are warm and nights cool!). Trailhead in the 60's. Saturday, we'll hike to the top of Telescope Peak-the highest peak in the Park, at 11000 ft, with spectacular views in all directions. You will see Badwater in Death Valley on one side and the Panamint Valley on the other... The lowest (-282 ft below sea level Badwater Basin) and tallest (Mt. Whitney 14,505 ft) locations in the continental US can be seen from the top of Telescope peak.  We also visit the Charcoal Kilns. The hike itself is a 14 mile round trip with 3000 ft elevation gain. The hike is considered strenous due to the gain and distance. The weather, while always unpredictable, should be in the 60's and 70's. Dress in layers, bring 10 essentials for the hike and camping gear.  If we have more then 15 in the group,  some of the group will do Wildrose Peak, a 2200' gain in 8.5 miles round trip. The first 12 to register and prepay will have their choice of peaks.  Sunday optional peaks are available. Trip includes happy hour snacks, a Saturday night dinner & breakfast Sunday. BYOB.
