Thank you, everyone for the tips. I wish there were more clouds in the forecast, but maybe we'll luck out and get a few. Any tips on where exactly to go to get a good picture of the Furnace Creek dunes? It will be dark when I get there in the morning, so any suggestions on where to park and how far I need to walk would help out. Thanks again.

Stovepipe Wells, about 30 min from Furnace Creek.  Parking is signed - probably a 15 min walk from the lot to the dunes.

I was at the Racetrack two weeks ago. You should be aware that the sunsets at the Racetrack aren't that great, as the sun dips behind the mountains surrounding the Racetrack (and, I think, the Sierras just to the west) well before it nears the horizon.  Having said that, it seems that late afternoon (when I was there) or possibly early morning are likely the best times to go, as the sun hits the Playa fairly steeply, which brings out the surface texture of the ground and the tracks of the stones.

The road there is pretty crappy too, so be prepared for a long hard drive.  But it's worth it.  It is a fascinating place.  Head directly to the parking area at the south end and walk across to the south east part of the playa, where most of the rocks are.

I also found the sand dunes more interesting than Zabriski for sunrise.

Careful with the renting idea though; 5D MkIII file format is not compatible with anything but the newest releases of Lightroom, Photoshop etc.  Updating won't work, you got to spend money.
