After Mammoth, I drove south for a couple of hours to Death Valley National Park and the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes. It was a relatively mild afternoon by Death Valley standards, climbing only to 106 degrees. I'd originally planned on camping in the park, but it was so hot that I decided to get out as fast as possible.
