Please help me with information and advices!
I'm plan to visit USA (Los Angeles) for couple of week, and I want to rent a car and go to the Death Valley and may be Hoover dam to.
1. My aim is to visit the grand landmarks - breathtaking views etc. And something that I can't find in Europe. That's why I want to visit "Real American Desert" in Death Valley (Grand Canyon will be better, but it is to far from LA). Could you advise me some specific places in Death Valley and aprox. 50 miles around Death Valley with such breathtaking views and grandiose landmarks? I plan to arrange my trip in 2-3 days.
2. Is it safely if I will drive to Death Valley ALONE on my rent car from LA? I'm a very experienced car traveler and have traveled across all Europe, but I'm worry because if it could be no help (no people and no cell coverage) in Death Valley. May be I'm wrong.
3. Is it OK and safely, if I will visit Death Valley at the end of December? I mean weather and climate. What about temperature, wind, humidity etc? As I know there can be freezing in some part of Death valley and heat on the other part. So may be you can advice me some special clothing for this trip, thermos and food etc.
Thank you!Edited: 4:49 am, December 04, 2012
