Standing at the entrance to Death Valley and the first exploration photo stop on this amazing adventure is the old Ghost Town of Rhyolite, a long abandoned gold mining community and the set for many movies and documentaries. You will then drive down a beautiful winding highway and enter the center of Death Valley from the east. This is like entering a foreign and strange world of endless desert, vast valleys, harshly sculpted peaks, garish colors, superbly adapted plants and animals as all are visible expressions of geologic time reckoned in millions of years. The driest, hottest climate imaginable is Death Valley, an immense, wild land that man has never tamed.
Capture the view of the valley from Hell's Gate, well above the valley floor, and then visit Badwater at 282 feet below sea level. You'll also enjoy views and stops at Zabriskie's Point, the Devil's Golf Course, the Furnace Creek Museum, the Salt Lake, the Sand Dunes, and Artists Pallet. The majestic mountains, colorful canyons, volcanic craters, and salt pinnacles all make this trip a photographic sightseers dream come true. For the truly adventurous, we not only offer this tour in spring, fall and winter, but also throughout the summer months!
