Salton Sea / Death Valley / Arizona Trip Planning

Looking ahead we've decided to take a 2 week (or so) Trip in February.
This trip will be somewhat of a retracing of previous trips but we never tire of traveling through the desert.

The Annual "Salton Sea Overnighter" on Super Bowl Weekend at Bashfords Hot Springs near the Salton Sea will be our first stop. Below at Bashfords is good friend Steve V.T. who sadly passed away in 2014.

We likely stay on for 2 nights then head to the Joshua Tree National Park for at least one night.

The next leg in the trip would take us to Tecopa California and the Tecopa Hot Springs. Tecopa Hot Springs sits near the border of Death Valley.

Tecopa is not quite at the edge of the Earth but pretty close.....a pretty barren place.
A couple years ago we camped there with some other folks....had a great time.

We'll head into Death Valley via "Badwater Road" which is a somewhat longer route in but much more scenic. Drops down to the lowest elevation in the U.S.

Over 80* last Feb. when we stopped at Badwater....

We'll spend 3 - 4 nights at Furnace Creek.....from there....who knows.

Hope to head over into Central AZ. but weather conditions will dictate that portion of the trip.
