During our honeymoon roadtrip through California, we also visited the Death Valley. For me, it was truly a welcomed change to come to such a warm place after many days spent in the cold north 🙂 What I couldn´t understand is that most of the campsites were already closed (mid May) because it was too warm 😉 But we did find one, it was 58,5 m under the sea level and 25 degrees in the evening. As there is no light pollution, it is a great place for star gazing. We tried to find some constellations, but there were so many stars visible, we just couldn´t. We went to sleep with the howling of coyotes nearby.
