I needed to find a little cheer today in something besides my usual hours of fresh air. Although I couldn’t find a yellow #VW
van in our parking lot this afternoon, I smiled a little remembering my excitement when this 🚌 pulled in after our first stop within @deathvalleynps.
I’ve said a number of times how vans are my spirit animals “in vehicle form” to people all over the country. This one had been loved well — noted by the dents, worn storage boxes, and fraying back window curtains. Nonetheless, its sunny bottom half glowed in the California sun and it will forever be the van I saw at the lowest elevation in North America.
