Roadtrip USA: Death Valley National Park

...driving below sea level

We got up early again and after a suprisingly good motel breakfast, we headed off to Yosemite Park. At 7 AM we barely saw another car for hours. Following some internet advice we followed Badwater Road. I must say, it was pretty pretty boring. Sand, rocks and the glarring heat were all we encountered during our 1 1/2 hour drive. We made a quick stop at Golden Canyon, but still exhausted from the Yosemite Hike, we just took a sneak peek.

As we were through at around 11 AM, we didn’t encounter heat above 35° C when driving below sea level. But it was a boring and exhausting drive and so we treated ourselved to a last In-and-Out Burger, as they are only available in the Western States.
