Sunday, August 15, 2010 : Calico, Death Valley


roadmap-us mark-5-5-us A rather long drive, with many, many stops, in superb landscapes. A very spectacular environment.
attractions-us mark-5-5-us Although at times it may look a bit mercantile, Calico deserves a stop. And what about Death Valley ... It's superb, it's gorgeous. I'm short on superlatives.
weather-us mark-5-5-us Excellent weather, not a single cloud.
hotel-us mark-4-5-us Furnace Creek Ranch is really fine for a stop. We just regret the high prices of the hotel and restaurant, which are explained by the remote location.


A really beautiful day, nothing to throw off.
  favorite-us The pool at Furnace Creek Ranch, warmer than our body temperature, and the spectacular sunset above the Pamanint Mountains.
