Death Valley Pt2

I visited Death Valley National Park for a few days, the weather wasn't hot enough the last time, and I decided I needed to experience 115 degree heat, and the rainy season.  I still don't really know what I was thinking going down there during such severe conditions, but I still had a great experience, and still managed to take a few more pictures that I love.

I've uploaded a number of new pictures to the Death Valley Gallery I created earlier in the year, you can check them all out there.

Some fun Death Valley Facts for summer travelers venturing into the valley:
  • I stayed in furnace creek, the hot water temperature taps should be renamed to "really warm" and "hot".  There is little difference between the two this time of year - don't expect any cold showers!
  • I woke up for sunrise and headed out to the dunes, it was the place I wanted to explore the most.  At 4:00AM it was still 90 degrees, by the time I left a few hours later it was nearly 115.  It's not much of a reprieve from the heat when overnight lows are still 90.  Also of note is that there were thunder storms, and there was some cloud cover nearly every day.  It could have been much much worse.
