My wife and I first went to Death Valley on a coastal road trip back in 2007. We passed through in June and just about melted. Not the time to go but we were so impressed we made plans to return the following winter along with our trip to Vegas. Trust me, winter is the only time to go to be able to enjoy yourself. We thoroughly enjoyed it and I highly recommend anyone planning to go there to spend a minimum of two days. It's a big place and it takes that long to drive the park and stop a bit along the way. Like most national parks, the only way to truly appreciate them is to use your feet and spend some time. I'd go back in a heartbeat if not for all the other things my wife and I want to see before we can no longer travel. It really is a great place to visit and I highly recommend it. We last visited in February 2008. Oh, make sure your camera battery is fully charged.
