  • Death Valley

    During my drive out to Monterey, I decided to make a detour through Death Valley. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I'm already thinking about planning a week long trip so I can really explore the whole area. One day was not enough time to spend in Death Valley. I recommend everyone spending some time there. Anyways, here are some photos I took during my halfday/day excursion. I only wish I had gotten there earlier so the sun would not have been as high as it was while I was taking pictures.

      No, I stuck to the southern side and by the time I was done I was exhausted and still had to drive to Bakersfield that night to make my hotel reservation.

            That is one long haul. Now you know what to look for the next time your crusing the backside of California.

                  If you get a chance to get down to the area, another really cool place that I discovered in my youth is Calico Ghost Town, just south of DV. It's nothing spectacular, old silver mining town, but it's just a neat place to visit.

                    They didn't go specifically to there, it was a sight along the way ;)

                        Man! That looks so nice & warm compared to what has been going on here for the last 4 months.

                        What camera did you use on your trip?

                          It got up to 70 F and I got sun burnt. While it would've been nice to enjoy it with friends, I was glad to get to do it by myself and just take in the surrounding landscape.

                            Hehe, wait a couple of weeks (or so) and it'll be hitting triple digits. :row__738:

                            By the way, Im not a big fan of desert valleys, since Ive lived in one for 15 years, just about...and to top it off, I hate the heat, and love the cold. :row__635:

                            Cool pics non-the-less.
