To some it might just look like a big hole in the ground but if you have any interest in geology at all, I think you will find it of interest.

We stopped by the crater on our way to visit the Racetrack. Ubehebe is the last stop on the paved road - so getting there is no problem. It is about 60 miles from Furnace Creek (1.5 hours drive time). So you decide if you...More

It said it could be as young as 800 years old, WOW, what a show the large steam exploration has done. And their stage was decorated with sediments stripes. Beautiful! And it could happen again, who knows.

Ubehebe Crater was one of the most fascinating things to see in Death Valley. It's a about an hours drive from the Visitor's Center, but well worth the drive.

It's a huge crater surrounded by black volcanic desert. It's well worth the long drive from the more populated areas of the Valley. It's windy but quiet. You can hike around or into the crater if you've got the energy. Great photos!

One way in and same way out. Quite a long drive to get here but the road is good. The crater inside is nice. You can walk along the top of the rim.
