The most memorable new years eve I've ever had was the one we celebrated in the middle of nowhere, the desert called Death Valley in California. There are two small settlements where you can stay, we stayed at a motel in Stovepipe Wells. Death Valley National Park is a huge park and it takes several visits or days to cover this space. The actual valley is 140 miles long, the lowest point is 282 feet below see level and the highest temperature measured was 134°F (57°C). Never come here unprepared and with a full tank of gas! This natural bridge picture was taken near the Artist's Palette.


  1. Do I dare ask what happens when you have a full tank of gas and the temperature hits 134F?

  2. I hope it didn't happen to you? ;-)
