Hot at the bottom/Pretty cool view from the top! Date Climbed: May 24, 2009
We took a day to escape the heat and hiked up to top of Telecscope Peak. What an amazing view... we were able to see Badwater and Mt. Whitney (The lowest and highest parts of the lower 48 states) from the same place. This was an awesome trip and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Visited DV as a young child. All I remember was that it was 120 degrees and the visitor center was the only place I wanted to explore because it was cool inside. Will definitely visit again - next time I'll venture outdoors!
