Lone Pine, CA to Death Valley, CA
As I have crossed the USA and Canada, I always wonder how the pioneers and settlers handled the area I'm seeing. Death Valley is a many-miles-wide Valley - up to 280 feet below sea level, captured by mountains on both the east and west sides. It is miles and miles of desolation, unbearably hot, still, and empty. Just vast nothingness.
