Jacob, Caleb and I were the adventurers on this trip, courtesy of my parents! Thanks *so* much, Mom and Dad! (I'll gladly be your "designated photographer" on any future trips! : ) )
This was Caleb's first time to fly~ I was *so* excited for him! Flying is such fun!
Can you see the roller coaster in the photo below? It actually originates in a hotel! Crazy!

Yes, we actually had clouds the first day we were there! It was a good thing too, since the temperature topped 100 degrees F!
"O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly;
My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You,
In a dry and weary land where there is no water."
At one point when we were driving North through Death Valley to hike it was so desolate that a car didn't pass us for at least 20 minutes. Such a lonely, quiet area!
Badwater Ultramarathon~ a 100 mile race which is run during July each year here. It is officially been removed from my bucket list! LOL!!)
The view wasn't as crystal-clear as I would have hoped due to extremely windy conditions the day before (lots of dust in the air!), but such a view! The white area in the photo below are the salt flats at Badwater~ mile after mile of salty, desolate landscape.
Hope you've enjoyed this whirlwind tour of Death Valley!
