I recently spent a day in Death Valley exploring the highlights and wanted to collect a Wanderlist of other people's experiences in this popular tourist spot in California. Like all deserts, this one has its own personality and unique characteristics and I love seeing other perspectives on a place I have visited as well.

Rhyolite, NV 89003, USA
If you're headed to Death Valley, be sure to stop by the ghost town of Rhyolite which is actually in the Mojave, just outside of the park in Nevada, about five miles from Beatty. There you will find a cool ghost town, but what will really get your...

Stovepipe Wells is a great ol' town - one you can imagine would have been a real welcome sight for dirt thirsty cowboys navigating their way through Death Valley. The place lives and breathes Western, so much so that the room key tags they hand...
