We are in death valley and it is boiling. After being in las vegas where it was really bright, noisy and cool death valley is exactly opposite dark, quiet and hot. The reason why they don't put lights up is because when it is dark you can see the stars clearly.
We just climbed up mosaic canyon and it was amazing! Once a month it rains cats and dogs (very heavily). There is so much water it can't soak into the ground so it flow on top of the rocks and mud. Eventually it erodes a path to come down. Four square of miles of water flows down there and we walked up that canyon. We were thinking it was a natural waterslide and how fun it would be to go down it.
Bye for now,
