Camel Track Canyon

My friends, Larry and Janene from Moby Goes, took us on a little trip over to what I’m calling “Camel Track” Canyon out in Death Valley country. The actual small canyon is unnamed on the map.

A cross-country hike led us into a small canyon filled with sedimentary rocks, where we found a set of fossil camel tracks from the Miocene epoch on a small shelf. The tracks are more than five million years old! It was truly a fantastic find. Thanks, guys, for showing me this little spot.
