Death Valley (in half a day)

We were headed to Mt Charleston to take the kids for some winter fun and Vince thought we could pass by Death Valley on our way there. We have always wanted to explore  Death Valley National Park but the fear of extreme warm weather during the visit was a deterrent. We figured, it was safer to visit it during winter when temperatures range from the low 30’s  and high 60’s F.  Death Valley National Park earned a world record  for having the highest air temperature in July 1913 at 134 degrees F.

Leaving home around 3 am, we arrived at Death Valley National Park around 0630 am; the sun had just risen and it was beautiful. I wish we had more time to explore it, It was a short adventure , I’m sure we will visit it again.

US and Canada Coast to Coast Road Trip Adventure with Tesla Model 3

 

So we tried the Model 3 this summer; round trip coast to coast. It was our first time  using a full electric car so planning required more effort and considerations.

We had a general idea as to where we wanted to go, but we dealt with the little details of our  route on an everyday basis. We booked our accommodations the day before or the day itself.

We left Los Angeles around 9 am, arrived at Barstow, CA to supercharge and had lunch. Late afternoon was spent exploring the historic downtown of Flagstaff, Arizona. We enjoyed the shops, street art, performers and the  laid back vibe of the city.

Christmas in Mammoth

It’s just wonderful, celebrating Christmas in Mammoth Lakes. This has been the second  year that we spent Christmas in Mammoth and for  2 years in a row, we got lucky with a snowfall on Christmas day. I love Mammoth because the drive from LA is smooth. You hardly notice the elevation as you drive  up to the mountain. Nope , we didn’t ski nor snowboard this time, the kids were already happy playing in the snow with sledding and  building a snowman .
