2021 Vacation: Day 5 - Death Valley
We started off our day at Badwater. While this salt flat wasn't as pretty as the flat outside of Salt Lake City, we still considered it a must-see. At 282 ft below sea level, this is the lowest place in the US which is kinda cool.
After a half hour walking the flat, we hopped back on the main road and headed back north. Artist's Drive is on the way so we decided to drive that up. I'm so glad that we did because it was so memorable and rewarding.
The heat was pretty intense at this point. 106 degrees. We ate lunch at the Badwater Saloon again and then took another dip in the pool. We decided a nap was in order at the point and pretty much stayed indoors the rest of the day. The heat had taken it out of us and we were down for the count.
