Death Valley National Park: Travel Observations
My son and I took a trip to Death Valley National Park. As we expected, it was incredible! During our 4-day stay, we experienced the natural wonders that make up the park. Some examples were mountains, sand dunes, canyons, salt flats. That variety and the size of the park (it’s huge) made it one of a kind.
Even though we witnessed some unique sights, I was disappointed that we didn’t see much wildlife. That only applied to the larger animals, because I had no desire to see any rattlesnakes. In the end, it was a great trip. If you ever have a chance to visit Death Valley National Park, do it.
- Shoutout to the Timbisha Shoshone Tribe.
- In Death Valley there are 2 levels of darkness: very dark and dark AF.
- Vault toilets are one of the most disgusting things on earth.
- When you’re out at night and it’s can’t-see-anything dark… if your flashlight catches some glowing eyes, just keep moving to the car.
- Las Vegas strip… I’m still not a fan
- When there’s only one gas station… your only choice is pay $5 a gallon. You DO NOT want to run out of gas there.
- Being able to see the sky filled with stars is amazing!!
- The prices in the Death Valley gift shop are so outrageous that they should have an apology sign on the door.
- “The best snakebite treatment is to avoid being bitten” Advice so practical that it’s hard to argue.
- Sometimes I think that my camera is a wildlife repellent. That’s great when it comes to snakes, but…
