Death Valley Initiation Itinerary (3 Days)

This itinerary was about our trip to Death Valley. Although this trip involved a lot of long drives, Julie and I were surprisingly able to accomplish quite a bit in terms of all the sights we wanted to see in Death Valley itself. We were even able to visit a rare waterfall within the boundaries of the National Park, which was really cool. Anyways, like with most of our trips in California, we were able to pull it off within a weekend. I only needed to extend the weekend by a day by taking Friday off to minimize the amount of time taken off work. That said, Death Valley was definitely a very harsh place, and I guess if we ever make a return visit here, we'll be sure to rent a car that's in good shape. I realized after the fact that taking my parents' car to Death Valley might have taken a few years off its lifespan.
