We didn’t spend a lot of time in Death Valley, since it was one of the hottest days on record. We did our best to safely tow the trailer up Death Valley Pass toward Lone Pine. In retrospect, this was probably the dumbest route we could have taken, and it was the only part of the trip where I worried that our truck actually might not make it. If that had happened we would have been in trouble.
Beyond the stress of this part of the trip, the park was absolutely beautiful and I’d love to return in winter sometime. The heat was unreal so we didn’t do very much exploring.
