DAY 6 - BAKERSFIELD / LAS VEGAS Visit desolate Death Valley — the hottest, driest, and lowest spot on the continent. It is one of America’s most extreme locations – from sand dunes and desert, to badlands, towering peaks, and a basin that actually regis- ters below sea-level, this is sure to be an unforgettable stop. There’s a bit of everything here on the border of California and Nevada. Carry on to Las Vegas and explore the famous Vegas strip. Opt to take a limousine tour or try your luck at the slots. DAY 7 - LAS VEGAS / GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK Travel Route 66 from Vegas, stopping at a wacky burger joint along the way. Continue the drive to visit the south rim of the Grand Canyon, one of the earth's greatest on-going geological spectacles. Take a short hike (weather permitting) at the most spectacular gorge in the world and enjoy a pizza dinner at the rim while watching a stunning sunset. Marvel as the Grand Canyon unfolds before you. Don't get too close. The land drops almost straight down for more than 1,000m (3,280 ft) into the serpentine canyons below! The gorge is filled with rocky buttes, sheer limestone cliffs, and deep canyons all arrayed in a rainbow of colors. Words defy. This is truly one of the most magnificent sights on earth.
