While the price difference is far less now, I remember a time several years ago when the price of gas in Beatty was $2.01 LOWER than the price at Furnace Creek!

Sounds like it is going to be even more expensive than it already is! I think I will stick with my senior rate for my RV in Sunset Campground!

I don't have a specific memory of the dip. I will have to take note on my next trip before it goes away. I hope to go before Christmas for a few days.

No matter how much you widen the curves, there are going to be people who want to go faster than what is advisable. Towne pass is my usual way to enter the park.

I can't sleep out on the ground anymore, or even in the back of my former Windstar Van. I need the full comforts o...

While on an adventure called “The Great American Road Trip,” five Canadian filmmakers from High on Life SundayFundayz broke laws, ignored warnings and caused a variety of mayhem in several national parks, the most egregious perhaps being at Yellowstone National Park.

I never could quite understand the 134.6 and 136.4 argument between Death Valley and Libya. I didn't think they could do fractional degree readings back when the records were made.
