Five hours of “Are we there yet? “, “How long?”, “I am hungry!”, through the Mohave desert brought us to Death Valley National Park. One look at the sand dunes and all the tiredness and cramped limbs were forgotten.
Three generations walk across the sands of time
King of the sand mountain
A new day begins with a fresh cuppa
At 282ft below sea level, Badwater Basin is the lowest point in North America. A concept a little difficult to grasp for the kids. “How can the sea level be so high on the mountain?” “How do they measure it?” “Will my friends think it is snow and not salt when they see my pictures?”
Is that snow, mom? No, its SALT! 

Badwater basin – the lowest place in this part of the world

Death Valley National Park is one of the hottest places on earth. Best time to visit – winter of course!
