    It's been getting rather warm around here of late so be sure and keep that in mind.

    I've heard that there is a good 26-mile loop that includes Cottonwood, Dead Horse and Marble Canyons. That would definitely be worth a look as I've been well into Marble Canyon and always said I'd return. Thus, by backpacking you'd get even further in there. Marble Canyon is great.

    I agree with above post. In the Bay Area, daily temperatures are reaching toward 70F now, so by mid-month in Death Valley you could be suffering in fairly high temperatures.
