Planning on visiting Death Valley on July 9th, (yes it will be deadly hot)!
I see Dante's peak is on the way from Las Vegas to Furnace creek. I also know we must purchase somewhat of a visitor pass or entrance fee to be in the national park. Do I have to pay this fee first in Furnace creek and then come back to Dante's peak or can I do the peak first and then go to Furnace creek?
Also, if we rent a car in Las Vegas, do we have to ask for something specific? Type of car? Or anything well maintained with 4 wheels and A/C will do? Any recommendation? Any renting company is better for this kind of trip?
