    Death Valley

    July 27, 2017 in the United States

    From the lush surroundings of Mammoth Lakes and Yosemite, we headed for the desert wilderness of Death Valley. A three hour drive between the Sierra Nevada mountains stunningly and suddenly disappeared into a flat scrub land and blistering 50° heat.

    The road into the park was winding through the various basins of the desert and we descended from 8000ft in the morning to under sea level by the time we made it to our hotel in Stovepipe Walls, in the middle of the park.

    Just a mile or so down the road was the first sight to visit - the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes. Venturing out of the car (against NPS advice!) for the first time, the hot, dry heat was unbelievable...this is the hottest, lowest and driest place in the lower 48 states.

    A few miles down the road, we stopped at Furnace Creek Visitors Centre to learn about the park, which despite the heat, is home to a surprising variety of wildlife and plants.

    Death Valley

    October 11, 2017 in the United States

    Death Valley! Heiß von oben und von unten, staubig, sandig, atemberaubend schön trotz seiner kargen Landschaft.

    Wir campen am Eingang des Nationalparks, ich fürchte die Begegnung mit einer Klapperschlange, die Jungs und Freddi sehnen sie herbei, aber auch die Schlange bleibt in ihrem Versteck. Statt dessen fliegen eine Stunde lang Kampfjets über uns, die einen Höllenlärm verbreiten und Matti&Ove sehr faszinieren.

    Am nächsten Tag wandern wir auf heißen Dünen, entdecken Salz und erfahren mehr über die Esel, die dieses früher ins Tal ziehen mussten, genießen die Aussicht am Zebrieskipoint und fahren danach weiter nach Pahrump.
