We continued our Epic Road Trip and drove through the desert. I expected temperatures to soar as we approached Death Valley. I mean, it’s the scorched valley of death and hell on Earth to all who enter, right? I had packed two gallons of water, just in case. Come on. I was a Girl Scout back in the day.
We found the world’s tallest thermometer.
Bummer. It was 10:00 AM and a cool 106! Temperatures in Las Vegas hit 112 degrees the day before. I’m sure it warmed up by afternoon, but we didn’t stick around to find out.
As Danny filled up the gas tank, he spotted an interesting shop across the street. A jerky store. Our son is a huge fan, so we had to check it out.
We weren’t the only ones who stopped. I didn’t know Area 51 was so close to Vegas.
Did you know about the Galaxy Peace Patrol? They work for the Interplanetary Galactic Federation, of course.
I took my time while approaching the vehicle. You never know…
I jumped a mile when the aliens moved in the front seat. They did! REALLY!
I had my doubts, but a new friend tried to slip a dollar in anyway.
It wouldn’t take her money. I think the aliens will be around for a while.
When we hit the road, I suddenly felt like an alien invasion had taken place.
Will I survive this Wild Ride? Stay tuned for more of my Epic Road Trip.
