I'm planning to take my 65 year old mother on a trip to death valley in late March. We are flying to Las Vegas on Thursday, then driving the 72 miles to Death Valley to arrive that evening.
We'll have 3 full days there - Friday through Sunday. And departing on Monday.
My mother does not read or speak English so will not be able to help me drive or navigate. Also, I would like to stick to main roads and be around people in case something happens.
Death Valley is huge. Where do you recommend we stay? What should we see each day? Do you recommend the free ranger talks offered? Do you think it'll be dangerous for two women traveling alone? I read about long stretches of roads with no one in sight. That would worry me.
Please help if you have information.
