Quiet in Death Valley

Mesquite Springs

Each day provided new views and light shows with unexpected attractions. We saw the Milky Way span across the sky, identified Mars and Saturn without a telescope and counted at least ten satellites crossing the night sky.

There are no roads suitable for our car further north or west of Ubehebe Crater and the only road to the east is closed due to repairs at Scotties Castle our time was spent just enjoying our location. The end of the road is an obvious plus for anyone seeking quiet.

Did I mention that it was quiet in Death Valley? It was quiet until the Navy showed up.
