Ethel M's Factory & Botanical Cactus Garden

I love this place! They have my favorite chocolates. This past November they reopened after a short remodel. The new building looks great. The self guided tour is still just as fun. We had a chance to watch them make two different candies. 

After my extensive candy purchases, we made our way to the gardens. We stop by here on every trip. It's very peaceful.

The Pool

We found time to visit the hotel pool twice. It was a little cold, but the inflatable pizza slice made up for it. The hot tube was fabulous. Both days we were the only ones there.

Death Valley: Part Two

We made it to the Visitor's Center at Furnace Creek before it closes. The flush toilets, and museum and gift shop were a nice change of pace.

After an hour our of the sun, we were back on the trails. Harmony Borax Works was a quick walk with informational signs.

Salt Creek was amazing. The water was still flowing and we had a chance to see pupfish.

Our last few miles of the day were walked at the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes. We were lucky enough to watch the sun go down while in the hills of sand.
