After spending an extra night in Pahrump because of the door ordeal, we finally put in the last 60 miles to Furnace Creek, Death Valley, CA.
However, this year there are many more tourists than were here last year and getting away from them can be tough. Lots of bus tours and rental RVs. The campground is full and as soon as one rig leaves, another one pulls in. You can tell there are a lot of novice RV drivers as you watch them try to park their rig.
We got parked, had some lunch, then went over to Sharon’s house and picked up the Walk for Life T-shirts. I needed to get them rolled, put a rubber band around them, sort them into sizes, and put them in the drawers so they would be ready for all the people who are walking. 60 shirts rolled and put away.
On Tuesday Jim and I rode out to see one of my favorite spots in the Valley. Salt Creek where the pupfish live. I am fascinated by these amazing little fish. They only live about 6 to 9 months, and they have a lot to accomplish in those few short months. They need to hatch, grow up, eat, mate, reproduce, and die. The males turn a beautiful blue when they want to mate and become very aggressive about protecting their own territory, as you can see in the video.
Back to work.
