Death Valley, mid-July. Am I crazy?
I'm planning a trip around the various canyons and twisties in ID, NoCal, NV, AZ, CO and UT starting early in July and taking about a month.
I would appreciate any advice about the *hot* places. I have a mesh jacket, KULA vest and am aware of the necessity to hydrate. I've heard from some riders that Death Valley could/should be crossed at night. Just how bad is it?
Didn't go there after all
When we were in Fortuna a few days ago, Redding, CA and the various deserts were 120 F and higher. Did the CA#1 Leggett to Ft. Bragg and CA#30 to Willits and then turned tail and went up the coast.
Next year I will organize for May/June.
Many thanks to those who posted their advice.:clap
