Arrived around 3.30pm and headed straight for The Strip so that we could see it in daylight first. We drove down the strip staring out the windows and snapping a few photos here and there. After a while though, the traffic got to us and so we turned off and began the search for an RV park. The first one we tried was ageist as they wouldn't take RV's older than the year 2000. We then found another one and this time we were accepted gladly, so we registered and parked up, cooked dinner, showered and then drove back to The Strip to see it lit up. We returned to the RV park around 1am and went to bed, after having various cards shoved at us offering us girls!
Had a really nice lie in and had breakfast in bed
Up around 9am, showered, had breakfast and packed up the van ready to go. We have enjoyed our time in Las Vegas, but it really does wear you out! We left the RV park around 11.30am, drove down the road, fuelled up and stocked up on supplies and then headed out towards Death Valley. We made a quick stop at the welcome sign again to get it in daylight and then we were on our way. A couple of hours later we stopped for lunch in Red Rock Canyon Park. Another hour or so and we had only made it to Pahrump. We then had to make a decision. It was only about 3pm and the sun would be down by 4.30pm and it was about an hour to Death Valley. Do we now stay in Pahrump, although a bit early to park up or do we continue to Death Valley and hope we make it through in daylight. In the end, we decided to drive to Ash Meadow National Wildlife Refuge and/or Death Valley Junction to see if there was somewhere to park up there and if there wasn't, return to Pahrump. We arrived at the refuge just before 4pm, but discovered that no camping was allowed, so we continued on to Death Valley Junction. This town consisted of one hotel/opera house and another abandoned building.We quickly turned around and returned to Pahrump.
