Its cooling down now. But highest I saw was 119°. Let's just say it feels like youre holding two skillet handles while someone is blowing your arms with a heat gun. Intense!

LOL. Yup. Been about 90 in Ontario as well. I was thinking that was hot. But the AZ folks, I don't know how you do it.

We escape to our cabin up on the rim. But, even at 7,800' elevation it was still in the upper 80s. Got back to the valley & it was 120º, so grabbed a frosty beverage & got in the pool.

When I was scouting SW III rides I had the good fortune to be traveling through Las Vegas and Baker on the day that the news was reporting what could be the highest temperature ever recorded, if not in the world, then certainly in the U.S. They were predicting 129 or 130 in Death Valley and I wasn't that far away on the 10. Just east of Vegas I had to put on my gauntlet leather gloves just to be able to hold my grips. Going through Baker it was 126, and my riding partner pulled over into a station that happened to have and outdoor shower (why I'm not real sure) just west of Baker. Lady owner of the station saw us coming and waved us into a shaded parking spot. He got off the bike and just walked right into the shower, clothes and all. I declined the shower but did suck down quite a few Gatorades.

Oh, and they ended up not setting that record all time temperature in Death Valley - but several hundred people were there frying eggs on the highway, much to the dismay of CALTRANS.

The Furnace Creek station in Death Valley has the record for hottest temperature on earth: 134º on July 10, 1913.
