Death Valley is in the eastern desert of California. Don and I honeymooned there 35 years ago. It's nice, mild weather, and beautiful desert. But in the summer it's not so nice. It can get to 130 degrees F and melt the skin right off the bone.
We have gone there once a year for the past 10 or 12 years to golf with the in-laws in January. The golf course is dormant then and the greens are like putting on cement. But the views are beautiful. It's also the lowest spot in the nation at about 214 Ft. below sea level. When we had our plane we used to fly in and land on the western side of the golf course, get out and push our clubs over to the tee box for our first game.
We at the rest of our meals at the cafe. The food was okay but once again it's pricey for a cafe. If you choose to eat in the steak house the meals are around $25.00 per plate. I don't think that includes salad or soup or drink. Just the main dish. Desserts are good and run around $7.00 a serving. Fountain drinks are $2.50 on up and Bar Drinks are $7.00 on up. Coffee is $ 2.75 a cup.
