Death Valley - Ferrari Club of Las Vegas - February 24, 2008

The Porsche Club invited us to join them for a one-day drive to Death Valley for brunch at Furnace Creek Inn driving via the scenic and fun switchback route. We met at 8:45 am at the last gas station on the way to Pahrump where Routes 159 and 160 (Blue Diamond) intersect. Gas is very expensive in Death Valley and along the way, so we filled up here. We departed at 9 am sharp. We took 160 toward Pahrump; turning left before Pahrump onto the Old Spanish Trail Highway through the switchbacks and through Tecopa. Turned right onto Route 127 north into Shoshone for a restroom break. Turned left on Route 178 (Badwater Road) into Death Valley. Stopped at Badwater Basin (the lowest elevation in the US) for a picture. Turned right onto Artist Drive thru some beautiful scenery. We had 12:45 reservations at Furnace Creek Inn for brunch. Aprox $25.00 a person payable to the Inn included a 15% tip. We then took a different route back to Las Vegas. Thanks to Robert Douglas for the pics.
