This park should be seen only in the car with the air conditioning on because the heat is insane: While we were there the temperature rose to 45 degrees, as it marked the thermometer on my watch.
From Las Vegas at the first stop in the park takes about two hours away.
We stopped in a couple of stages very interesting, Zabriskie Point and Badwater Basin and walk along a beautiful ring road: The Artist Drive. Leaving the park, we also stop the dunes of Stovepipe Wells Village.
Zabriskie Point. It should go up to the rooftop terrace for about ten meters. You can see small hills pastel different shapes. The place is beautiful and we stopped about twenty minutes.
Badwater Basin. From Zabriskie Point continues to Furnace Creek, just before you leave to reach the 190 to take the Badwater Road in about twenty kilometers leads to Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the USA (86 meters below sea level). Here we record 45 °. The landscape is desolate but charming, in the plain desert opens a vast expanse of salt at the lowest point. Even here, twenty minutes is the maximum resist outside.
Artists Drive. Going back to Furnace Creek is on the right takes the ring one way called Artists Drive. The road is wonderful because it passes through desolate hills taking so many shades of red. The most beautiful is obviously called Artists Palette.
Remember to use the small as the way out of Death Valley has a steep downhill to avoid ending up with the brakes on fire as happened to one of our three cars. Fortunately, after having made them cool to the sound of gallons of water we left without further problems.
