Day 2

Day 2, Las Vegas-Death Valley NP-Sherman Pass-Sequioia NM-Camp Nelson

(Look at how close we came to Michealfish's Place.)



We find the bike unmolested in the parking garage.


We head out down the famous Las Vegas Boulevard, but it's not so attractive in the morning light. I didn't start snapping photos until we got into the Spring Mountains.


Nice morning for a ride.






Badwater Road




We got an early start to avoid the hottest part of the day, but it's 100 degrees by 8AM. I love Death Valley, but I'm gonna rethink riding through here in summer. I rode through here last July as well.




Badwater Basin, 282 Feet Below Sea Level, Lowest Point in the Western Hemisphere






This Valley is LARGE!




We take a break in Furnace Creek for icecream and water. We soak our shirts in water to cool us down. The wet shirts work really well.... for 30 minutes.
