Well, here we are in Death Valley, CA. We are having a great time so far on our road trip. We've driven approx. 1,150 miles, and just had a couple of close calls. I think I felt our guardian angel yesterday while driving the steep, winding, narrow roads of Yosemite. Today, we reached Badwater Basin, the lowest place on the North or South American Continents.
This is the temp registered in our car as we stopped. The insurance man choked when he looked at the dial, and we both laughed. We never really thought we would feel what 112 feels like. It is very dry, so really wasn't as bad as it seems. If it was humid it would be a very different story! It was also very windy, but instead of being cooling, it was one very hot, dry, scorching wind.
