Breakfast: Completed and ready to board vans at 7:50 am, leave at 8:00 am.

Morning: This is a fabulous site to behold! Stand and look into the 1/2 mile wide crater, 700' deep and see the magnitude of the explosion that created this huge "hole in the ground". There are many optional hikes here: Around the Crater, Up to the top edge to see Ubehebe and Little Hebe and others, or down into its core! Fast hikers sometimes have time to do more than one choice.....the options are yours. This is a sight in Death Valley everyone should have the chance to see! The experience of the solitude as you hike around the crater and/or stop and spend time to just "enjoy" the scenery is magnificent! All times and itineraries may change.

Lunch: Picnic with sack lunches at the tables on the grounds of famous Scotty's Castle! This unique and wonderful castle built in the 1920's-1930"s in the heart of the northern end of Death Valley is a beautiful setting to have lunch, then explore the grounds. We may even see coyotes, birds and other wildlife at this great place that has an abundance of water! Interesting, Historical and Peaceful! Take some time to relax and enjoy the scenery and marvel at how the grounds were designed to utilize water and its environment. All times and itineraries may vary.

Afternoon: Scotty's Castle is a must on your trip to Death Valley National Park. It is one of the major human history stories in the park, sharing the mystique of Death Valley with many others who have left their mark, both before and after the Castle was built! Tour this historic "Castle", just one more facet of the interesting and diverse human history of Death Valley National Park. Your "interpretive tour" includes a trip through history inside the castle and is led by National Park Rangers. Dressed in "period clothing" they discuss the history of how the "castle" was built and imaginative relationship shared between Walter Scott, "Scotty" and Albert Johnson, his wealthy friend and "investor" from Chicago! Learn all about the by-gone days of Death Valley Scotty and Scotty's Castle. You can explore the grounds either before your tour or after and even walk up the hill to Scotty's grave, where he's buried with his dog, Windy! The location is great! There is another gift shop unique to Scotty's Castle, hosted by the Death Valley Natural History Association, and a Park Visitor Center manned by Park Rangers. Then we'll return to the Furnace Creek Ranch for dinner. All times and itineraries may change.

Dinner: All dinners will be at the Furnace Creek Ranch Wrangler Buffet, unless otherwise noted. All times and itineraries may change.

Evening: Wednesday evening is a time when there is no evening program! We have found that participants enjoy having an evening off to relax, read, or visit with other participants, gathering at the spring fed (84' year round), pool, spend time alone, getting ready for Thursday's big hike......whatever you feel like doing. Dinner is still scheduled for 6:30 pm, followed by a brief description of Thursday's hike, and then you can have the night to yourselves. Some participants like to just have a little 'quiet time' for themselves, get together, have some laughs, relax, etc.! Whatever you prefer, the night is yours to enjoy. BUT, do get rested for the grand hike on Thursday!! Remember, all times and itineraries may change.
