Death Valley Trip
Our trip to Death Valley was wonderful. Flat tire the first day, bliss and warmth the rest. No quieter place than the desert. It's great there because you can walk all day and never be winded. The elevation is below sea level. We hiked some great canyons, sand dunes and salt flats. We tried to spy the elusive chuckwalla with no luck, but did catch some yotes. Coyotes that is. Swam in a spring fed pool, lacked showers for days at a time, and ate the always better tasting than it should camp food.
