We went to DV for the fourth of july. phew it was hot. 125 while we were neck deep in the furnace creek ranch pool (didnt stay there, jsut used the pool) it was about a hundred in beatty, where my kids enjoyed the waetermellon eating contest and YES there were fireworks! -
a woman recommended a phenomenal spot up in fish lake valley for fishing at 13,000 feet and we went up there and into the eighties. much more pleasant. also my kids caught 15 trout!!! first time ever fishign.
brief twilight times at the dunes, zabriskie, even the charcoal kilns were toooooo hot. could feel how hard it was jus t to breathe. not hiking around in it weather.
nice trip all the same. someday i'm going to have a four wheel drive. man at the pond said to me "you canme all the way up here in that itty bitty car?"
