I did a quick browse and read a recent thread about Bryce, Zion, and Death Valley, but I was curious if anyone had any experience visiting Death Valley since hurricane Hilary blew through. I checked out the NPS website for DV and it shows quite a few road closures due to washouts. I'd still like to take the drive out since it looks like there's still PLENTY to see, especially in the winter when daylight is short. Was hoping to get some advice on the best things to see that are available now, the Artists Drive looks like a must do, and we'll definitely stop in at the visitor's center where I'm hopeful to get to buy a nice souvenir hoodie or something similar. There's some kind of alien themed diner on one of the ways out there as well that looked like a fun place to stop for a meal. My biggest concern doing any kind of hiking is usually lack of oxygen being up the in the mountains, this Florida girl needs air! But being near/below sea level I'm kind of excited to not worry much about that. Still, any short, easy hike recommendations would be preferable. Thanks for any insight, ya'll!
