  • This is nice, but also quickly over. You don't have to climb out of the car (and air conditioning) to see this natural phenomenon.

  • I went to see the different colors and I was not disappointed. After parking, ideally, more courageous, to up the small hill, which is difficult because of the overwhelming heat (always take water on oneself). The view is sublime and there are what take full the Peepers. If like me, you have the chance to be the only one on this point of view, and the wind to stop for a few seconds, you will live a unique experience: absolute silence into the heat makes you feel like a tree frozen ground for hundreds of years (I had not smoked!). Magic!

  • Salt, rock with lots of various colors that change with the light. Not required to go to the artists palette to find, you will see almost everywhere in the DV. But this is worth a visit.

Where to stay in Death Valley National Park

Death Valley National Park provides numerous developed campgrounds where you can pitch a tent. Some of these are free, and some are open year-round, while others only offer camping in the cooler, non-summer months. There are a few privately owned and operated lodges and inns in the park, most of which feature rustic accommodations. With its upscale lodging, the Furnace Creek Inn stands as an exception. The town of Beatty, on the Nevada side of the park, offers a few basic inns and motels and a couple of casinos. On the California side, Randsburg sits farther away from the park's popular Furnace Creek area, but the town offers numerous economy motels and views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
