Death Valley National Park

We drove from Yosemite, which was quite cold in September and into the hot, wide basin that is Death Valley. Endless, 'dead looking' ground...which wasn't quite dead as a few grasses and joshua trees hang on, albeit, weakly. The heat was overwhelming.

It was too hot to even contemplate camping here. There is a hotel in furnace creek though.

Unless you have a death wish, don't attempt! We got out of our car several times to have closer looks and take pictures, the longest about 15 minutes. The view merge of the Sand dunes into coloured rock was breath taking. Artist Drive was our favourite spot....and onto Vegas baby!

Ya, I can now say I had a short run in one of the hottest places on earth...
