One more for the "it ain't Nevada file", my Labor Day weekend adventure to Telescope Peak. It was 112 at Park Headquaters, but 66 when we got out of the truck to start hiking. I love hiking late in the afternoon and hiking until dark . The views from the trail and the top of the peak were amazing, even though they were hampered by smoke from the SoCal fires. I haven't been to Death Valley since the the '70s , but I going to take advantage of being so close. Death Valley is a desert hikers dream...Good Stuff .
