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.

Shot at Artist's Palette, Death Valley. It was 110 degrees mid-day with sun bearing down on us, and we were in full motorcycle gear so we couldn't stop too long or us along with our bikes would over heat, but the sight of these mountains was too...

This was shot just before sunset at the Zabriskie Point in Death Valley National Park. The park is less than 3 hrs drive from Las Vegas and is the biggest national park in lower 48. The landscape here is mind boggling as the heat! ;D

This beautiful place in Death Valley is on the way to the Mesquite Sand Dunes and it's called the Devil's corn field. Walking on it feels very strange as the sand is solidified at the surface. When you step on it makes in crack and it sounds and...

Sand dunes ripple away into the distance at the Mesquite Dunes in Death Valley. The desert needs to be visited to be experienced in all its glory.

The Inn at Furnace Creek is far too calm, comfortable and watery to actually exist, here in the middle of Death Valley. Still, a lovely hallucination all the same.

When visiting Death Valley make sure you get up before dawn to watch the sunrise on the Mesquite Flats Sand Dunes near Stovepipe Wells. It is absolutely magical as the sun starts hitting the dunes. Definitely worth the early wake up call. (But...

We drove from the San Francisco Bay Area, and this was our first stop because it was right next to the hotel we were staying at. A very easy, quick hike through the canyon.

When visiting Death Valley National Park with my parents we were in awe of the landscapes around us. So many variations in the rock, soil, salt flats, colors, shapes and other formations. You could really visualize how the different areas of the...

Zabriskie Point, California, USA
Looking something like a cross between a moonscape and leathery skin, Zabriskie Point is one of the landscape highlights of Death Valley. Shaped formations, formed over thousands and thousands of years look best in the early morning, as the sun...

I had been to Badwater Basin in Death Valley before, but this time I drove around more area and came across the sand dunes at Stovepipe Wells. I thought there might be be some cool opportunities to take photos on the dunes. I climbed up and down a...

The Badwater Salt Flats has an iconic view of crusty irregular shapes and makes for a quick stop while driving through Death Valley. Make sure to go in fall or Spring. Summer is too hot and winter is too cold.

At 282 feet below sea water Badwater, Death Valley, is the lowest spot in the United States. With salt 'rocks' sprinkling the remains of the basin itself (during Spring), follow the trial out into the salt flats after reading up about the...

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...

"Straight ahead for 42 Miles" said the automated, slightly pitchy, woman's voice. My road trip buddy and I looked at each other as if to check what we'd just heard. Sure enough though, the GPS was right. Straight as a die, but much, much more...
