We are staying in Las Vegas and we wanted to come to this great National Park before and not making it we knew we had to this time!!!
Well, it did not disappoint. It did take about 2 hours but it was a very good road. We went north and worked our way south through the park and it worked out good that way. We toured a ghost town called Rhyolite and that was neat but a quick stop. Then onto the park's natural features. You may have heard of borax being mined there years ago and it was and they have some old buildings you can visit where they refined it. Next we went to Stovepipe Wells,and then the visitor center at Furnace Creek. There is a very nice museum and a 20 minute movie there I recommend. From there we went to Artist's Point Drive. Wow, the colors of the rock are spectacular. Badwater is 282 feet below sea level and very interesting as there is salt right on the ground that has come out of the mountains.
At this time of year it was not busy which was wonderful and a nice way to get out of the bustle of Las Vegas.
