Finally! I've been looking everywhere for a board! I hope someone can help me. I have a ton of questions about Death Valley. I assume most people have visited so I must ask: in what hotel did you stay? A friend who visited told me Furnace Creek was real pricey. Now I'm hesitant to stay there...but we wanted to do most of our sight seeing around that area. I know that a couple other hotels (Panamint Springs and Stovepipe Wells) are located around the area as well. Anyone know approximately how far away they are from Furnace Creek? How many hours away? And what are the rates for two kids, two adults, and two nights?

Second, how long do you think it would take to get there from Fresno CA? I e-mailed a person and he thought about 7 or 8.

Third, some of the reasons we're going to Death Valley is for photography, the experience, and of course the desert. Me and my family often go on night-hikes in the mounts. to experience the wildlife. Knowing that most animals at Death Valley are nocturnal, anyone have any night-hiking experience? Did you experience any life, and what kind? Any bats?

And fourth, what did you think of it? What places did you visit...were you impressed?

Well, I know I've asked too many questions, but I'm hopeful someone can answer them. I'm really lloking forward to this trip (leaving July 3rd, back on 5th). Only a short trip, but exciting. My mother thinks I'm going to be terribly bored. But she never was into the whole "outdoor" thing:)

Thanks so much, Blair
