  • The desert views over there are beautiful! There are two different deserts, a red one and a Grey one. Be sure to visit both! The formations of the decomposing sandstone are impressive. I recommend to start to hike early or after 4pm because it gets very hot early
  • Serene desert great for exploring, stargazing, and simply enjoying it's beauty. Photographers will love it here.
  • Feels like out of the world. The maze provides a nice walk. Should be very nice for nocturnal views too.
  • Not much known. But here is a real desert, and friendly (& cheap) guides will guide you through
  • It is a very nice and interesting place for astronomy work. However, try to stay in a place that is not the astronomical Center, is a place where he cares only that you pay for using a terrain that is public, the bathrooms are very dirty, the place for bathing very unhealthy, and a great congestion of people which makes it uncomfortable, it is better to walk two minutes and there are several places more where leave you camp with bathroom , shower and with roof in case it rains not flooding tents
