This morning, we woke up at 8 to sun. We packed up camp, ate breakfast, and started driving to Las Vegas. On the way, we drove through Death Valley. We saw temperatures of 117 degrees. We stopped at the lowest point in the United States and probably the hottest. Badwater is 282 feet below sea level. When we got to Badwater it was 115-117 degrees. It felt like you were stepping into a sauna. We went to the highest and lowest point in the continental US in 24 hours. After seeing Badwater, we drove to Las Vegas. We had a little bit of trouble checking in, but eventually we got up to our room. Dad sent another care package, along with Lisa, Rick, and Keith. Thank you! For the rest of the day we hung out in the hotel room and ordered pizza. We were all tired and sore.
