Keri, I recommend that you check out the visitor center at Furnace Creek Ranch. There you will find a host of information about the area (sights to see, things to do) and park rangers that can answer your questions. For a first time visit, checking out the typical tourist sites (the museum at Furnace Creek, Scottyís Castle, Ubehebe Crater, Bad Water, the Charcoal kilns, Danteís view, etc) will give you some appreciation for the beauty and history. After that, expand your visits to include more remote areas that most tourists donít see. This time of year, expect cold nights (40ís) and cool days (60ís). Check out http://www.nps.gov/deva/Morning.htm for the morning report. As far as what type of activities are good this time of year: Any. Itís what ever your heart desires. Enjoy your visit.
