I was camping in Death Valley - 90 Degrees

I was in Death Valley camping.  I got in some hiking and saw a star show.  50 or so telescopes were set up and got great views of various planets.  I saw the craters and mountains of the moon and even saw the rings of saturn.  M1 and M2 were very interesting.  I went to Scotty's Castle and did the tour of the house as well as the underground tour.  It was quite fascinating.  2 Million dollars was spent to build the castle back in 1920.  The house had electricity from the beginning.  The weather was great until the last night and the wind tried to blow away my tent and the temperature dropped dramatically.
