Well o.k a lack of good coffee is not so fab but it is a small sacrifice for starry nights in pitch blackness and the vast open space with such unique landscapes.
I hear they have a marathon there, given it was still warm during the day in Winter when Yosemite and The Grand Canyon was snowing, all I can say is WHY?!
They have sand dunes and salty cracked earth.. its stunning to see and experience but unless you have a 4WD car you can't get out the The Racetrack or some of the further points so I would advise just doing 1 day and 1 night.
After Death Valley we went on to Red Rock Canyon Park we arrived late afternoon and I posted the image of the RV on Insta.. I was inundated on Insta and FB that it was like a scene out of Breaking Bad (which I haven't watched). I was later reading park info and it said that lots of films and commercials are shot there as it is more of a pass through location.. so maybe, just maybe?!
My favourite thing about it was the climbing for the kids was awesome and totally safe AND it had those cute trees that I adore and had yet to see in person. I am busting to get to Joshua Tree but these were perfect for now..
We have Yosemite, Tahoe, Palm Springs and San Diego all planned in the near future but if you have any stand outs please share..
We have no idea how long we will be here for but I don't want to come back to Australia and have missed out on a legendary U.S spot because that would be a serious waste..
Speak now or forever hold your peace..
