Death Valley Day #1

Dave and I spent 1 week camping and hiking in Death Valley. These are our notes and pictures.

Drive in, our car alone for a lot of the drive, otherwise, uneventful

Got in to campground around 11:30 am, the ranger was out to lunch. Saw roadrunner!

Set up camp quickly.
Headed to Badwater, saw the salt flats. Lowest point in the US.

Stopped by Devil's golf course. Salts but not quite flat.

Artist's Drive and palette. Nice to see, fancy road.

Checked out Visitor center and general store. Got the lowdown on Indian Pass, secret picture ranger books.

Had our custumary first night steak dinner. Very chilly. Cold beers not a great idea.

No one around!
