Woman Road Warrior: Road Tripping The Death Drive

Road trips always seem to deliver, but when you add an Airstream and a route like The Death Drive into the mix, it goes next level. Taking you from elevations below sea level to 12k-foot peaks towering above the Vegas Strip, The Death Drive rolls through some of the most diverse terrain in the US—7 climate zones, in fact, which would be the same as traveling from Mexico to Canada all in one road trip.

Some must sees along #TheDeathDrive include Caribbean-esque pools at Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge and Mount Charleston, where bristlecone pine—the oldest living trees on Earth—have grown for more than 4,000 years. That, and the region’s centerpiece: Death Valley National Park—the lowest, hottest, and driest place on the continent.

There’s funky #WeirdNevada finds along the way, too. Hit up Coffinwood—a family run coffin shop in Pahrump—or the Amargosa Opera House, a pioneer stage stop turned eccentric opera house. The Death Drive has a way of making your road trippin’ daydreams come alive—just let Nevada take the wheel.
