"Road Trippin, Death Valley Style" Other Points of Interest Tip by goingsolo

  Death Valley National Park
by goingsolo

For some people, hearing the call of the open road means driving as fast as the vehicle's transmission will allow down any given stretch of road. Death Valley is not a drive through destination; not for those who want to experience it. Take the gas pedal off the floor of the car and slow it down a bit. You never know when you'll want to pull over in a certain spot that just looks perfect. Even if you've been here 100 times before, there's probably something that you've missed. If you've always driven through at 80 mph, that probability is a virtual certainty.
