YOU DIDNT DO IT RITE MAN!
Wife has a bad foot (broken ankle years ago). Longest we hike is 5-6 miles, otherwise she gets into some pain.
We did do one of the smaller (shorter hike/more poipluar) canyons. The pics aren't in the video.
Frankly, I like mountains and if she's going to suffer we're heading into the hills. I found the lifeless nature of DV 'cool', but only took half a day for me to long for at least some sage brush, something.
We travel out West on average twice a year, entirely for outdoors stuff (mostly climbing, some birding). Death Valley ranks pretty low on the wow list compared to other things we've seen.
