The desert is calling and I must go

Death Valley

Death Valley is the largest US National Park outside Alaska at 3.4 million acres. It is home to almost 1,000 miles of paved and dirt roads with 91% of the park protected as officially designated Wilderness.

You will see low valley floors, barren salt flats, dry rugged mountains, vast canyons and rolling sand dunes.

The weather

When Ben and I were there in April 2014, we experienced 100-degree heat (Fahrenheit), a dust storm and gale force winds. But don’t let that stop you, just be sure to take plenty of water in case of an emergency.

Too hot for me!
