Camping Across America - Death Valley
Click on each image to enlarge.
100 mile drive during the night to arrive by
morning. I saw only two vehicles coming my way.
Pictured above was one of the two.
I took a 30 min. brake mid-way during the night. No one passed either direction.
No cellphone coverage so I depended on my Toyota and ham radio gear a lot.
No one drives at night around here. Only a few campers. Like having the place to myself.
No one on the road in the background. Lots of walking. Parking-no problem.
My car and a few other visitors at a distance. Got one person to take this picture of me.
Both of us was a welcome sight to see each other after a quiet lonely journey.
This fellow keep his short distance and so did I, but gave me a show for several minutes.
He then just walked off and I slowly drove off both enjoying the moment.
The real shocker was the price of gas in the valley. But then, if you need it, would be worth it.
I paid $4.04 long before I entered the Park and refilled in NV. for $3.44. In Santa Rosa I paid $3.72.
