Visted Yet During This Adventure? :
No. The Traveling Webmaster has not yet visited, Death Valley National Park during this current adventure, but once I do, I will be sure and tell you all about it. I will provide a rating and my recommendation whether you should schedule Death Valley National Park in your next vacation plan.
But I have been to Death Valley National Park before in the late 1950's early 1960's.
Traveling Webmasters Comments : What I associate the Death Valley Days with the most is the old Television show Death Valley Days starring first the Old Ranger then with Ronald Reagan. It was an anthology of programs that themed around the early west and those people who first settled or crossed in the area. The program was sponsored by the Borax Company and featured the 20 Mule Team as their icon.
