The road to Aguereberry Point (elevation 6433 feet) is really scary. However the view from the top is great. It’s also proof that Death Valley isn’t always hot. In February it was wicked cold! There was snow, even. Snow. In Death Valley! Look at me. With a scarf! Freezing my butt off, for the selfie! Down at the floor of the valley it was as hot as you expected, and there were wildflowers all over.
