"Hotter than hell, so they say. Who knows." Death Valley National Park by sabe

Death Valley National Park Travel Guide: 948 reviews and 2,199 photos

It was hot, but I went during the not extremely hot month of March, so I was fine. Death valley is spectacular and wonderful! It lacks people, which is great! What it doesn't lack , is sand, salt and blue sky, certainly guaranteed!
The roads are in pretty good condition at most times, of course there are tracks that shouldn't be used if you're using a RV or got a camper on the toe. Four wheel cars are good, but not necessary since off road driving is prohibited anyways. We drove a pick-up and that was absolutely fabulous, even on the wash-board roads where it can get pretty bumpy at times.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Hot, empty, sunny, beautiful, amazing, did I mention hot?
  • Cons:Sorta hot.
  • In a nutshell:Hot!
