Colorful Views Worth Stopping For

Zabriskie Point is just off main highway with lots of parking and a short walk uphill to the overlook. It was very pretty in the morning with the sun over my shoulder.

This place is so amazingly stunning. The hills around you seem to be folded like fabric to form this beautiful landscape. We were pressed for time but I wish we could have hiked around a bit. I don't mind that kind of heat, but my kids were wilting! If had to be at least 120F.

temp hit 115 here in Aug, short walk from car park was enough for photos, amazing scenery but do carry lots of water. Its amazing how much you drink going from AC vehicle to 115 we had 4 litres for 2 during the day and drank it all.

This is a nice short walk to get a beautiful view of Death Valley before you enter it from the east. It can be pretty crowded with tour busses some times but that doesn't have too much of a negative impact. Bring some water and the walk is short but steep.

The temperatures were around 120 degrees, but the short walk reveals a dazzling view of a macabre landscape!

We went to Zabriskie Point to view the sunset. We had a perfect view and we were not disappointed by what we saw. The colors in the sky were fantastic. This is a must see!

Easy walk up to Zabriskie Point. The sunrise was pretty good. We came a bit early, though, so you might have to wait a bit.

The views around this area are stunning. As with any spot in Death Valley, come early to avoid the extreme heat and the crowds.
