Death Valley

When Sam and I moved out to Oregon, we instantly started researching what was around us and where we wanted to go first. Coming from the East coast where everything is pretty spread out, our options on the West seemed limitless. We were planning potential trips and trying to see how far we could push ourselves to drive in a day, and after coming from the East where you have to drive pretty far to get anywhere worthwhile, 16 hours just didn’t seem that far away. So off we went, headed straight for Death Valley and Yosemite.
