Zabriskie Point, Death Valley National Park
Categories: Geologic Formations, Nature & Parks
Famous as the spot on the cover of the U2 album "The Joshua Tree," Zabriskie Point is a geological curiosity formed by sediment from a dried-up lake. Thermal waters gave it color, and wind and lava shaped its erosion patterns. This location is named after Christian Zabriskie, vice-president of the Borax company, which had mining operations in Death Valley. The sun makes high-contrast shadows on the formations, which change over the course of the day.

Called in on our way to Furnace Creek. What an amazing view. It was hot as to be expected, but you can't pass through without a trip up the hill
Great views. It takes a walk up about 150 feet, but it is worth it. A bit crowded for Death Valley but ok.
Zabriskie Point is one of those landmarks where you can truly appreciate the beauty of the different landscapes of Death Valley. You get a 360 panoramic view where you can see various beautiful rock formations and Badwater Basin to the distance. You just park in the parking lot and walk uphill a little ways before you get to the large viewing platform. Go here!

Photographers: Both sunrise & sunset can be spectacular. Sunrise is preferred. Fewer people (except other photographers). View point 360 Easy to change directions depending on cloud & related conditions. Expect beautiful erosion patterns & colorful sand stone! Steve J. Giardini Photography
Perfect. Definitely go there during sunrise, although some people like to also see it at sunset. whenever you go, plan enough time to hike down into the geological formation itself.

Drop dead gorgeous. A must see view, don't wait any longer go now. Summer is just a few months away if you go now it will be so much enjoyable. Otherwise its going be so hot. You going to need lots of sun protector. Bring an umbrella just in case.

A gorgeous view of some of the diverse landscapes that can be seen in Death Valley. It's a must stop when you are entering the park at least for the first time.
