A couple of weekends ago, I went camping in Death Valley. While there, I roasted hot dogs and made s’mores over a camp fire, visited a castle, walked along a desert river and saw the famous “pup fish” (which were pretty underwhelming, by the way), made snow angels in a field of salt, climbed on purple, blue and green rocks and threw popcorn at some kangaroo rats.
