1.) The valley, playa, and surrounding peaks are beautiful.
2.) This place's growing popularity has taken its toll. Some of the famous moving rocks appear to be missing, there are tracks from illegal driving on the playa bed, as well.
3.) The campground was quiet. There were about 8 or 9 other people there on a Monday night, but most seemed to respect that folks were there for solitude, not a party.
4.) The road out to Racetrack is definitely rough. Along the 27 miles of dirt road, plenty of washboard and sharp rocks. The rangers recommend renting a Jeep at Furnace Creek.
If you visit, please respect the landscape. Do not drive off road, and do not move the rocks on the playa bed.
