Day Eight - Lone Pine, California

Today was a day of extremes: from the depths of Death Valley to the refreshingly cool pool of Mt. Whitney Motel.


 Death Valley - 150+ miles through desert

Seemed like 150 degrees - really only 120.

  After climbing 5000 feet in the heat.


Most expensive gas so far, Furnace Creek

9 & 10% grades, up and down 5000 ft in 20 miles

 Admiring the view.
