[QUOTE=ntenny;1159731...There's a temptation to use the wide angle to "get it all in", and there's so much "all" out in the Great Basin that one often ends up with photos that try to swallow everything and end up being about nothing....
I also agree that the checked baggage is a really bad place for your cameras unless you have a really serious hard shipping case. Even then, you can't lock checked bags with locks the TSA (or pretty much anyone else) can't open.
If you're flying directly into LV, it may not matter much since you'll have them open for customs anyway. If you have a domestic US leg in your itinerary though, you won't be able to have the cases travel locked unless it's a "TSA" lock.
Regarding the weather, it will be 80 F plus in Death Valley and the other areas of the Mojave, more like 90+ in May during the day. No one who lives there talks about "hot" until the temps exceed 110 (43 C).
