    I have been to Death Valley twice and stayed overnight at Furnace Creek Inn. Even witnessed a thunderstorm and rain while there. I wonder if the Inn still requires dressing up (jackets for men) for the evening meal?

      and I'm not about the dress code these days. How long ago was it that you spent some time there during a rare and lucky thunderstorm, Ian S? Fact is, I never heard of such a policy, though it's Xanterra, and those folks can sometimes make up their own rules as they go along. Love your tag signature, by the way. Very funny, that!

      •  My visits there were both... (4+ / 0-)

        in the early 1990's with my mother; the first time we did not stay overnight but ate lunch at the Inn and learned about the evening dress code. The second time we stayed at the Inn and enjoyed pre-dinner cocktails on the terrace as well as a lightning show and some rain sprinkles. My mother had been fascinated with Death Valley for years after reading about a family that barely survived a car breakdown there once. So when I moved to Phoenix and she came to visit, the first thing she wanted to do was go to Death Valley even though that meant a flight to Vegas and a rental car. In Death Valley, she was paranoid any time I drove off the main road even though I kept to the appropriate sideroads.

        Speaking of the Inn's dress code, I see it is now referred to as "casual elegance" meaning no shorts or tees but apparently  a jacket is not required.

        My tagline is a compendium of insults that Markos has endured over the years from the haters that write to him.

      the last time I was there, but that's some 30-40 years ago.

      I actually had an acceptable jacket with me, but they had to "loan" me a tie . . .

      Love the place . . .
