California Road Trip: June 14, 2011

Mileage Traveled:  541 km

Mammoth Lakes, California to Las Vegas, Nevada

We left early from Mammoth Lakes after breakfast at the hotel.  Dennis had heard about a beautiful lake from another guest at the hotel so we headed to Convict Lake first.

We then headed south to Death Valley.  Before we could even arrive at Stovepipe Wells we were stopped by road construction for about half an hour.  It was 112 degrees F which no shade in sight.  Once we finally reached Stovepipe Wells I was suffering from heat stroke so we decided to head out of the National Park toward Beatty in Nevada and make our way to Las Vegas.  

At Stovepipe Wells

You can see the Sand Dunes in the background.

We checked into the La Quinta in North Las Vegas and ordered pizza! It was only 105 in Las Vegas.
