The Valley of Fire
California is probably best known for it's beautiful white sand beaches and world-class waves that surfers from all around the world flock to, but if you head east you'll discover landscapes much harsher. While you'll most assuredly find sand dunes, there are no oceans, and water is a precious resource. Temperatures in the summer have set world records for heat, often recording higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This truly is hell on earth, but if you look closer, there's a diverse landscape full of life. Come along with us as we journey into an alien like landscape and explore the desolate and beautiful Death Valley National Park.
A Desert Oasis
Darwin Falls is a geographic anomaly. If you're thinking there's no way a waterfall exists in a place like Death Valley, we completely understand. We didn't believe it at first either, but there it sits in the North end of the park, which is where we begin this journey.
Mountains Made of Sand
Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes rise up out of the desert landscape as mountains tower over the horizon. If you want to feel like you're in the desert, take a walk across the sand and a good look of your surroundings. There's sand as far as the eye can see.
They say the colors of the minerals in the hills resemble all of the colors on an artist's pallette. Explore Artist's Drive and enjoy views of the colorful mountains that surround you.
Death Valley's Superbloom
California's worst drought in the history of the state had a silver lining this year. El Nino weather brought heavy rains early in the spring, unleashing an array of wildflowers throughout the park. Rangers say the sheer magnitude of the bloom happens only once every decade and we were lucky enough to see the valley of death come to life.
