Rudy, Alyssa, Feng and I took a trip to Death Valley. It was about a 5 hour drive, passing several eerie abandoned villages, and driving 20mph on unpaved roads, hoping our tires wouldn't pop. This place is worth visiting, but honestly I'm not sure if I'd ever really want to go back. We hit up 3 spots in Death Valley - the village with a convenient store, a bar and a buffet, Badwater Basin which is the lowest point in North America, and the Sand Dunes.
This photo shoot took place at Badwater Basin - which was 115F/46C. It felt like a big giant breathing down hot air on us. We got out of our car, and immediately sweat was dripping down! You must be thinking we were crazy for doing a photo shoot.. yup we were! Though not the most eco-friendly, we left the car air conditioning on high, and ran back and forth to cool down and change.
Hey! At least the photos turned out pretty cool!
