Okay, so we are going to be off schedule. Instead of going to Death Valley we are headed to Sequoia N.P. via Los Angeles 10 & Sacramento 5. I think we are actually sick of the constant oven. Went to church with Michael's parents, interesting. Said good-bye to the family and off onto the road again 3pm(MST). We got not far west of Phoenix and the temp got up to 116F & stayed around there til the sun went down in Cali, now we are at 68F. Around Palm Springs, there was a right-roadside brush/tree fire for about 1-2 miles down. We could see it for miles, at first we thought it was a dust storm. (which the area is prone to). Traveled through L.A. at night and saw a lot of lights. Inn for the night.
