What has the temp been like over the last couple of weeks?  Heading to the springs this weekend, so I was just curious.

Expect consistent highs of 110 - 125 and consistent lows of 90 - 100.
Towards late afternoon, the south wind will make it feel 15 degrees hotter.
Saline Valley in the summer is essentially a giant convection oven.
Assuming you know what to bring, how to set up a proper camp under these conditions, and really really enjoy heat, it could be quite nice.
You might even have the whole place to yourself, like camping on mars.

We left Memorial Day weekend (on the Saturday), there were definitely some folks showing up there to party and I was glad we were moving on.  We had planned on staying a little longer but it was getting hotter every day, and having a bunch of drunk people loudly sharing their music right next to us was the icing on the cake.
