Xmas in the Desert 2005

It has been long past my turn to host the holiday gathering, so I decided to invite the family to my fair state for Xmas in Death Valley.

Surprisingly, the valley is rarely more “packed” than it is over the holidays. Seems like a lot of folks think it’s the place to be for true yule cool. Jean, Heather, Mary, Bryce, Tyler, and I got to cruise the sites and scenery of the park for a few days.

We were joined by my buddy, Chris, and his fiancé, Mary as we watched the Alamo Bowl. Michigan put a resounding period at the end of its worst season in many moons by losing to Nebraska. But we had a great time during our first Xmas below sea level.
