|Pass between Pahrump, Nevada and Death Valley|
It happened that we arrived at the Texas Springs campground in Furnace Creek within minutes of our friends Jack and Liz. The campground sits on a hillside overlooking Furnace Creek. We chose it for the view, because it is close to Furnace Creek which has a gas station, general store and two restaurants. Also, Texas Springs is quiet owing to generators being prohibited.

|A permanent waterfall. There's water in Death Valley, you just have to know where to find it.|

We have another day left in Death Valley so stay tuned (it may be a while though, internet can be sketchy in the desert).
