Nice report. we're coming to CA. this summer. It's our last state on our map and we are committed even if we have to bring our own water. Forming our plans now as there is much we want to see. Question is, is DV doable in July or August or would it be too hot to enjoy? Thanks

Generally it is going to be somewhere near as hot as hell and perhaps hotter than hell in July and August and for the most part not really worth staying. A drive through to view it with AC on could be OK but I would wait until Oct/Nov. if you want to enjoy the valley.

Death Valley temps in the Summer can reach upwards of 134 degrees, temps in the mid to high 120's are common. It's already forecasted to be over 100 by the end of this month. Hotter than hell is putting it mildly.

I would not go to DV in June, July, August, or September. Just go up to Mammoth Lakes in the summer, nice and cool up there and plenty to do.

X2, if you don't get to Death Valley by the end of this month I would wait until late October, the temps above are pretty accurate and there is no likelihood of hitting a cool period during July/August. There are plenty of other places to go in CA, as mentioned that is a great time to visit the Mammoth area.

Or the towns north of mammoth if you aren't into that kind of scene. June Lake, Bridgeport, Lee Vining areas are all great and have lots of places to camp and fish. Lee Vining is the eastern entrance to Yosemite.

Nice pics! I spent a week roaming around DV in July. My son never experienced a real hell on earth hot desert and wanted a challenge so his wish was granted. Did several hikes (one to Darwin Falls) and camped at the Geologist Cabin (takes some research to find). Planning & Preparation is key! If you're into trail adventures (hike, bike, or jeep) a good site to research is Steve Hall's Death Valley Adventures at Steve Hall's Death Valley Adventures
