Death Valley National Park – South
Adventures abound in Death Valley for every traveler. Enjoy some of the world’s best hiking through mosaic canyons and strange and colorful badlands. View the entire valley panorama from 5,425 above, at Dante’s View. Visit the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere at the crusty Badwater salt flats. Photographers love the birds and wild life, and amazing desert colors at Artist’s Drive, Golden Canyon, or Zabriskie Point. Spring wildflowers appear in different areas between January and April depending on rainfall, and extend into the mountains through August. Experience the 1800s with a visit to the Furnace Creek Ranch, including the Borax Museum. The four-diamond Furnace Creek Inn resort opened in 1927, and every detail comes with a story. Enjoy modern amenities too, with a golf course, swimming pools, tennis courts, great dining, saloons and gift shops. New in 2008: the largest private solar panel array in the U.S. Annual special events include the 49ers Reenactment, Art Shows and Astronomy events.
