After dinner we started the ~2 hour drive to camp over Hunter Mountain
The road was fine (marked as 4x4 or high clearance, depending on the map and the time of year), but we kept pulling over to take photos of the Panamint Dunes below.

And it is cold. When we stopped to take this photo I changed from my shorts and tank top into fleece layers. I would need them for the rest of the trip.
