My 2017 goal was "be outdoorsy!" I successfully hiked, camped, and backpacked through Yosemite, Joshua Tree, an abundance of California State Parks, and concluded the year with a trip to Death Valley! My hiking PIC and I took our 2 dogs to Death Valley. Badwater Basin (pictured) is 282 feet below sea level, the lowest point in North America! We caught every sunrise, sunset, and fell in love with the magic of Death Valley.
