    Even the rocks are melting :)

    It might seem like a useless tip, but one of the common mistakes people make in deserts and other warm places is to carry water and then not drink it.

    Make sure you carry enough water and DO drink it.

    Temperatures can get very high here and you will get tired very soon and even worse things can happen if you dont keep hydrated.

    If you are going to walk outside for any length of time in the park [such as the trail to Mouse's Tank] be sure to wear comfortable shoes, a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses.
    .
    Also be sure to drink plenty of water before getting there and to carry water with you. You can lose moisture rapidly -- I didn't even feel myself sweat. The desert plants are better adapted at conserving water than humans are!
    .
    There would be other warnings for the colder times!

    Road to Nowhere?

    As I noted in my intro, temperatures here in the summer can soar to well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The best times to visit are Spring and Fall. I was here in early May and the temperature was perfect. Be sure to bring water with you, and make sure your gas tank is full -- as you can see from this photo, there's nothing here but Mother Nature's finest and some asphalt.
