|The ghosts of Rhyolite|
After our short stop in Rhyolite we finally entered "Death Valley National Park". We only have one word for it, well maybe two......WOW and HOT! Death Valley was always something that interested me and something I always wanted to see, so there is was and it was just beautiful. We drove for hours through ever changing scenery, and we were just in awe of its beauty. Even though the vegetation was bare and pretty much the same all along the route, the ever changing mountain ranges were just amazing and ever so often you would see sand dunes along the road.
|At this point we got out of the car to feel what 113 F feels like.....HOT! The car windows were so hot that you could barely touch them....but we were happy!|
|There was a 20 mile long strip where you were asked to shut your air conditioning of so your car wouldn't over heat...another of our "we are going to die" moments lol. We had one of those pretty much every day.|
