We woke up at Stovepipe Wells ready for a long day. Our first stop of the day was at the Beatty Junction Barrier Bar deposit. This was where we were to do our research. After a few hours of working in the hot sun we took a break at a salt marsh, one of the few places in Death Valley were springs provide running water. Once everyone was fed, we headed north to Ubehebe Crater. This crater was created when molten hot magma reached an underground pocket of water and the resulting steam blew a hole in the ground. Our final stop of the day was at Mosaic Canyon, a canyon showing the erosive forces of water.
