young and immortal, we visited the desert in summer now and then, but we've changed since. Even summer has, I guess.
We just "drove" Valley of Fire on Google maps, and maybe we will do it for real on the trip we're planning. Our kind of place. After 20 years in the green temperate southeast and mostly visiting family on the coasts, it's going to be heavily exploring and camping the desert SW, seeing a lot of places we missed when we lived in SoCal. But definitely in cool season. Gas prices are very frustrating right now.
