Death Valley & Lone Pine

This was our fourth trip to Death Valley. Our main objectives this trip were to see some sights not yet seen, revisit some sites we had seen, and do some hiking. We did all of that. We also got to take a ride in a small, 4-seater airplane, which was…

Palomar Observatory
and Anza Borrego State Park
