Absolutely stunning colors

Absolutely stunning colors right out of the desert floor. Beautiful vista on the way down into the paramount valley, just west of Death Valley.

Spectacular scenery every where you turn, it is so easy to just accept it as ordinary,when in fact it is wholly stunning. Our whole Death Valley experience was outstanding, we have never travelled in what seemed such vast expanses of nothningness, but in fact they are filled with lots of detail and interest. Death Valley was one of our highlights... More

Whilst the views are very similar to the views one would see in the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, the Panamint Mts are far larger and over a wider area....this is a magnificent yet unforgiving country, something that should be seen once in your life

When it's hot down load, head high into the pinyon / juniper forest. Some good places are Wildrose Peak, which has a nice trail (4 miles, 2K feet climb) from the Charcoal Kilns (nice graded road to there) - stunning views into Death Valley below after the halfway point. Or continue on the rougher road (sedans can make it, driven... More

These mountains are on the west side. You cross them going into the park. They advise you to turn off your a/c as you are going up but it wasn't much of a problem because although it was hot it was not humid.

We exited Death Valley on this route in the early evening and the whole vista of the mountains and valley was bathed in sunshine and shadows, it was an awesome sight. The road to Lone Pine is certainly one of the most spectacular ways to leave this enchanting if somewhat challenging and dramatic place.

We enjoyed the views and were very pleasantly surprised when we went to Father Crowleys Viewpoint when an F 135 WAS FLYING THROUGH THE CANYON RIGHT NEXT TO THE OUTLOOK. Very exciting. And the views from there were breathtaking.

The Panamint Mountain Ridge is stunning and was covered in snow during our visit. We watched the rain showers drop in sheets from the mountain ridge - quite beautiful. Can't miss them!

We always enjoy a trip to the Panamints.....there are plenty of twists, turns, climbs and descents. Many viewpoints to see interesting things....
