My husband and I are planning a trip to Death Valley sometime in 2013. Tentative plan would be to fly to Las Vegas and rent a car there. Stargazing is high priority so we want to go at new moon time but otherwise time is completely flexible. We plan to stay for about a week to be able to take in some of the park but have time to relax. We would like to visit when the park is less busy but definitely not when it's hot.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
