Death Valley

Usually when I visit DV the large parking-lot RV campground is closed because it’s off-season. This time I get to stay in it. Hey, something new.

It’s remarkable that I can’t see a single rental RV anywhere. Rentals are almost always used by Europeans, and were regularly seen in big numbers at the big-name national parks. It’s odd not to see any at all around here.

I’m not impressed with the wildflower bloom. There are some typical flowers to be seen, but it is by no means a “superbloom”. I’ll go out tomorrow and expect to see more at higher elevations.

Tomorrow I’ll drive up out of this hole and over the Panamint mountains to Lone Pine and then to Bishop. The weather is perfect for crossing the Sierra Nevada, so I want to keep moving.
