Temple Bar, AZ to Death Valley, CA

Joshua Trees remind me of something out of  a Dr. Seuss book 🙂

We drove out to Temple Bar Marina on Lake Meade.  The campground is pretty but they don’t have any with electric hookups.  Since it’s cold, we don’t want to use up all our propane on heat.

Here’s our view from our full hookup RV site.  Not the most scenic, huh?  But it was only $18.50 for the night.  The AZ resorts are saying there aren’t as many RV’ers this year.  Maybe they’re staying put because of the weather?  It makes for pretty sunsets though!

Death Valley sounds like it would be warm.  Let’s go there!

See, we really did go to Death Valley.

Here’s the Devil’s Cornfield, in front of the sand dunes.  We stayed at Stovepipe Wells.  They had a few RV sites with electric hookups ($30 – no table, no firepit).  The entrance fee is $20 and you’ll pay $1/gallon more for fuel if you don’t plan ahead.  The second night we did without electricity (it was warmer) and camped at Sunset Campground for $12 (no table, no firepit).
