Day 14– Moonlight Bridge

For my final Death Valley hike of 2013, I decided to try to hike to Moonlight Bridge. My trip seemed to be perfectly timed, as Kauri (a well known Death Valley hiker) only discovered the bridge last week. Had she discovered it next week instead, I would have had to wait nearly a year to (hopefully) see it in person. It is quite difficult to find as there are a maze of side canyons, junctions, and ridges everywhere in the vicinity. I’m not going to say anymore about it until I put together my trip report later and ask Kauri what kind of information I can include.
