The trip from Eureka Dunes to Homestake Camp began with the sun rising over the Last Chance Range illuminating the dunes and revealing their sinuous shapes. The ground at the base of the dunes, the location of our previous nights camp, was still warm from the prior day’s heat.
Our journey for the day would take us from Eureka Dunes up Steel Pass and through the narrow rocky ledge steps of Dedeckera Canyon and down the warm spring lined Saline Valley to Lippincott Road. Lippincott road is a steep and narrow shelf road that climbs to the Lippincott Mine area and connects to Racetrack Road in Racetrack Valley. Sixty plus off-road miles later we would arrive at our camp for the night at Homestake Camp.
