I have looked around on trip advisor and also done alot of searches on the internet around this topic but figured I would ask to see if anybody has had the experience of visiting Death Valley in May.
I am going to california late may and seeing numerous parks/places (yosemite, sequoia, san diego). Still have the chance to see Dealty Valley for a day. Some of the sites in Death Valley look really great in terms of being completely different and really unique.
My basic question is:
1). Has anybody had any car issues with overheating or seen alot of car overheating if you do the basic drives in Death Valley (no off-roads) in late May or even June, July, or August? I am taking an intermediate size rental car. If I would go there, I would take numerous gallons of water in case a car does overheat. I just wanted to see if anybody has has any good/bad experiences with visiting in peak summer season.
I would like to just see some basic things and do a small amount of walking (nothing really long) due to the hot weather. I don't invision getting back ot this area for a long time and am still considering adding it to the trip.
