It's unfortunate a lot of people can't prepare themselves to deal with the heat. This axtra-ordinary piece of land is a place of beauty. It's amazing the vegetation and wildlife that survives in this environment.  Our previous visions of what to expect were completely overturned and we felt a special privilege of having experienced  such a phenomenal  place in North America. Viewing this desert from the seat of a motorcycle in it's harsh conditions was an ultimate experience.
