Death Valley is one of the best things of Nevada/California. Loved this place. Was hot as hell, but awesome.

Due to its close proximity to Furnace Ranch and Inn, it was pretty crowded at sunset. Otherwise it's very nice. Some views of badlands.

Nice views! While we were there, I saw a U-Haul truck on the hook of a tow-truck going down the road. "Adventures in Moving" indeed. Somehow I was reminded of a song by Southern Culture on the Skids - "40 Miles to Vegas". Except this was a LOT more than 40 miles from Vegas.

The palette here is loaded with sandy yellows, sun drenched and rippling as far as you can see. Out of this world! From the parking lot, there is a short walk climbing smoothly to the overlook. Take a bottle of water with you as surely you'll need it. The stunning view surrounds you, a landscape of unbelievable shapes, colourfull strata... More

Manly Beacon, one of Death Valley’s iconic landmarks, is viewed from Zabriskie Point which also provides an overlook of some very interesting badlands; in fact, we were more impressed with the beauty of the colorful, intricately eroded badlands than Manly Beacon. Located along CA 190, 4.8 miles (7.8k) south of Furnace Creek Visitor Center, with a short climb uphill from... More

One of the most beautiful spot within this National Park. Breathtaking rock formations and colors pull you in from all point on the look-out. You must make a stop here.

It's only a couple of hundred yards up a moderate incline to the viewing platform overlooking Zabriskie Point. As with all of fabulous Death Valley, there is a host of different geologies giving a variety of views all within a 270 degree vista. Close to the Furnace Creek resorts, this is easy and brilliant.

The color and formation of this area is amazing! This area is under construction (Nov/2014 - Spring/2015), so a bit messy with net, but a great place to visit.

Death Valley is incredible for the various type of rock formations within a small area. Zabriskie Point is one of the best locations to see the best of the National Park. The walk consists of short gradual road to a lookout!! It is a place not to miss. There are a few walks just below the lookout, which are not... More
