That's about as thorough a write up of Death Valley as I've ever seen. It is a very desolate place and the temperature extremes are amazing. In one late winter day we went from snow to 115 F.

I read about that one - def a Victorian lady ¿a thousand miles up the nile? The odd highly colourful phrase in today's usage too ! 😆😱 BTW 'our' boat was a bit big to do that I guess, took 18-20 plus 6 crew, a jolly punt, though !
