Death Valley

When you go to Death Valley, you expect it to be hot. Really hot. 132 degrees Fahrenheit. What you don’t expect is a reasonable temperature and really pretty pictures.

What you do expect that’s here, is tourism and literally nothing else. The only hotel that took dogs we could find was a Motel 6, where we had to stay overnight. It was certainly not good, but it wasn’t the worst thing ever. We then drove around death valley all day, attempting to see as many popular things as possible. We saw the lowest point, salt rocks area, the artists’ palette, and some other things.

My dad and I went out to Badwater Basin, which is the lowest point in North America. We didn’t realize that the lowest point was actually just a few feet from the parking lot, and instead walked probably a mile to what we thought was the lowest point. It was so windy that someone’s hat flew off their head and I ran probably half a mile to go get it. There was a sign above the parking lot that was probably 275-300 feet up and it said “SEA LEVEL “. That was probably the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. Imagine seeing a sign that says sea level, but its 300 feet above you.

The Artists’ Palette was simply incredible. There were greens and blues and purples and pinks and yellows and oranges… Basically, any color you can imagine was there. There was a 1 lane road that you could drive, and there were no other options. If you wanted to go back, you had to use another road. If you go to Death Valley, make sure you go here.

If you manage to make your way to death valley, those are some have-to-dos. The Badwater Basin is now completely submerged in water. Anyways, that’s all I’ve got for today so I’ll se you next time!
