    Of course, interested. Such an amazing area. We’ve never seen this part of the park.

      Unless you plan to fly into the Chicken Strip, drive a sturdy 4×4, or prepare for some serious bikepacking!

    Great composition in the picture above. I love Death Valley. Last time, I won a trip to Vegas for a National Science Teachers Convention. The week before was spring break, so I went early and camped out of a rented car for a week. The first trip it was 114 degrees, so enjoyed seeing it in springtime.

      Whew! 114 makes it tough to enjoy! Probably unbearable everywhere within the park on days like that. In general, because of the huge variation in climate among places as disparate as Badwater and Telescope Peak, I find it crucial to match my destination to the season. High elevations in summer, low elevations in winter. Of course, even doing that and tracking the forecast obsessively can lead to encountering some really uncomfortable weather conditions. On at least one occasion — during a big Thanksgiving storm when our son was a toddler — we decided the only realistic option was to get the heck out of the park.

    Again, great tour and photos.
    The Saline Valley Warm Spring oasis looks nearly idyllic.
