Dunes and Mountains

If you haven't visited Death Valley yet, you're probably assuming, as I did, that it is covered with sand dunes; actually dunes cover only about 1% of the vast National Park; these are the easiest to get to, with a handy parking lot nearby. That means, of course, that everyone stops there and there are many footprints to prove it. I researched some of the other less accessible dunes and may try to get to those next time I visit.
