Big disappointment...the one attraction in the park we'd listed as "must see" is presently closed for construction. This was not on the main park website so I recommend you call the Visitor Center if this is your goal. My recollection is the closure will be a couple of months.

We have enjoyed a great sunrise there. I definitely recommend not ommiting this location if you are visiting the national park. We were there in August, so temperatures were higher and the place was not overcrowded.

This is a sight that puzzles many people. How can the rocks have such different colours? The great heat does not make it any easier to guess.

The view is spectacular. Beautiful, amazing, desolate emptiness. Fantastic moon landscape, perfect photography opportunity!

Sunset at Zabriski point.....it is not of this world. It could be on another planet. But keep everything well fixed. I lost my lenscover in the strong warm wind. Lucky I ran downhill and could catch it just before it was gone forever.

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
