This June I plan to possibly visit Death Valley. I am a certified desert nut, if there is one around I will explore. I am visiting my sister in LA and plan to rent a car and spend a few days in the DV area. I did like Joshua Tree(about 6 years ago) and would like to know the best places in DV. Not a hiker this time(will have children with me)but we do just like to BE there and soak up the atmosphere. They have been to the deserts of Utah many times and they do well there. My question is: Is DV too hot for comfort in mid-June and what are the best(and most reasonably isolated)places. Would appreciate any help. Also would like to know of any special places in the DV area, outside of official park land. thanks.
