023: Lone cyclist
it was very hot, when we were on our way to Furnace Creek, our destination of that day in Death Valley. It was later told that the temperature peaked at least forty degrees that day: ‘a cool day’, according to the locals. My friend was suffering and sweating a lot because of the heat, whereas I liked it quite well. But we both has some trouble to walk around, in the burning sun and walking a bit uphill. But it was worth the effort, we were amazed by the scenic landscapes and the few lifeforms that could be found there. To our big surprise, we encountered a lone cyclist along the highway. While our air conditioning was working full power in our car, this crazy cyclist must have been sweating a lot in the burning sun!
