2002 – February 16-19: President’s Day Weekend.

We set out for our first but drive-through only visits to Yosemite Nat’l Park and Death Valley Nat’l Park. At that time we didn’t  have a notion of the ’7lows’ concept. Turned out, when we got there that Badwater in Death Valley is the low point for the North American continent. Cool. Writing this now (09/23/2010) I do want to go back and be there while realizing where I am.

We made it a 4 day driving weekend. On February 16 we made it to and drove through Yosemite, a place that has become one of our favorites and that we have visited many times since. The next day we cruised around and stayed the night in Ridgecrest from where it was relatively easy to get to Death Valley. First stop on February 18 was Trona Pinnacles and then we continued into Death Valley National Park, with stops in Stovepipe Wells, the Sand Dunes, Furnace Creek, Badwater, Dantes View, Zabriskie Point, Artists Palette before driving out again.
