We are flying out of Toronto to Las Vegas. We arrive in Las Vegas at 11:30 PM (2:30 AM for us!). We pick up a car at the airport and crash in a nearby hotel (a Holiday Inn thing) and tomorrow morning we drive (3 hours) to Death Valley, I am looking forward to learn more about Death Valley history and geology. For the race we are staying at the Furnace Inn Ranch and Resort. I am wondering if it is named the Furnace Inn because of the heat?
