worth seeing

A short hike up a fairly steep hill will bring you to the best view in the valley. The climb to the very top is not for the deconditioned.

Easy climb from the parking lot to the top to get a good view of the landscape. If you hike in from there, and are afraid of heights, don't take the first right hand turn up the hill. My wife got quite scared.

Zabriskie Point in Death Valley National Park shows the nature's beauty. The place is easy to get to and it offers great photo ops. The sunset at the Zabriskie Point is a phenomenon.

Love the view but so does the tour buses. The colors of the canyons is magnificent. Hard to imagine a better place to view the sunset.

Easy hike up from the parking area (where there are pit toilets available). Amazing views of the canyon below. Easy stop off the road with parking for about 20 cars.

Your surrounded by nature! The colors are amazing and the terrain endless seeming. In every direction we saw dramatic changes, with the recent rains quite a bit of greens, tans, soft yellow tumble weeds too.

We did Dante's View first, then did about 1.5 hour hike starting at Zabriskie Point. There are a lot of tourist just near the parking lot, but hardly anybody on the trail. Welll worth getting into the canyon, and hiking the "wash". Take a map, you could get lost.
