First, I want to apologize for being a little absent the past week or so.
My life has been surprisingly busy lately.
Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere for too long!
Today is the final post for my Death Valley adventure I had a few years ago with the fiance.
This will be more of a photo-dump than story time.
Lowest place in North America.
The Artists Palette:
Gorgeous views and surprising colors.
You can simply drive through, or get out and explore on your own. We chose to explore.
Giant crater formed by volcanic activity.
We got lost for an entire afternoon exploring the surrounding area. One of my favorite locations in Death Valley.
But, I will leave all of you with this photo of me...
It's still a mystery how this happened.
My eye was almost swollen completely shut.
The outdoors and I don't always see eye-to-eye.
Overall, Death Valley was incredible!
I can't wait to go back.
If you are interested, it is helpful to have a vehicle with 4WD- otherwise, you will not be able to access many of the back country trails and locations.
We had to rent a jeep for a day and it was not cheap.
Go when it is cool. December and January are best.
There are 3 hotels, but camping is the most rewarding-
as long as you don't mind waking up with a swollen face.
The best way to see the most beautiful spots in the park is to get out and explore.
