Over Spring break we decided to take a 4×4 trip across Death Valley, CA. The inspiration for the trip came from plane fights to Las Vegas from San Jose and looking out the window at the Mojave desert below and thinking….some day I want to go drive across that desert.
Well, it’s was even cooler than I had hoped. Standing 250 feet below sea level in a dried up salt lake that 20,000 years ago was 600 feet deep, I really did feel like being at the bottom of a dried up ocean. We luckily made it through 90 miles of open desert dirt roads over two days. I have never seen so many colorful rocks and mountain formations. Some day soon I would like to return to Death Valley.
