I learned weather systems were heading our way and a decision had to be made, where to go? All of northern Nevada looked to be nasty. Snowstorms were to hit Donner Pass in the High Sierra. South was the only escape and Death Valley was the most likely stop with guaranteed nice warm weather. With a few parting shots of Arches National Monument, we were on our way.
We made it as far as Cedar City Utah for the first night,
where we got snowed on in the wee hours of the following morning.
Sinbad settled in for the long second day push to Death Valley National Park.
Late that afternoon with the sun setting on the town of Beatty Nevada behind us, we crossed through Daylight Pass between the Grapevine and Funeral mountain ranges.
Death Valley lay before us with the snow topped Panamint Range in the distance.
It is below sea level just beyond the lighter colored area and over 11,000 feet high at the top of those mountains. Pretty amazing I think.
