I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this question but I wasn't sure where else to put it! Husband and I will be in LV in mid-July. We're thinking about driving a couple hours to Death Valley and staying in one of the little lodges with the hot spring baths. I've never been to Death Valley and it looks incredibly beautiful, and Saturday night is our least favorite night to be in Vegas b/c of the crazy crowds. We're thinking we would leave Vegas around 3 or 4PM on Saturday, get there in time to see the sunset, stay up late looking at the stars, sleep a few hours, wake up in time to see the sunrise, and head back to Vegas mid-morning on Sunday. So we'll avoid the worst of the day heat. I know it's CRAZY hot in Death Valley in July, but I'm wondering if anyone has specific experience they could share about this? Especially experience with these hot-spring places. Just looking to learn more. No need to reply to tell us we're crazy, unless you have experience to share. Thanks much!
