What an amazing place. Geology everywhere you look. We met very few cars or people on our drive through Death Valley. It was a cloudy and rainy day (yes it does rain in Death Valley). Fortunately the clouds broke up every now and then to enable some great photos. The play of cloud shadow and sun was spectacular. We also... More

It was great fun to drive through the speedway. Lots of curves and nice views. But I got really scared after it got dark and I had to go about 1,5 hour through the desert without seeing any light, any house nor car :/ strange

Stunning and quite frightening landscape here...plenty of time to look around, were on motorbikes so had a real feel for the "heat" that this place generates....and this was NOVEMBER! Only 94 that day, but enough on a bike! Worth the trip from Vegas though

This is the most awesome roadway that takes in all sorts of views of valleys and mountains. Plenty of stop off points to take much needed photos.

It's hard to understand the beauty of Death Valley unless you've been there. This is one of the more scenic areas. We enjoyed exploring here.

Get out onto the valley floor as the sun comes over the side mountains to get some amazing photographs with long shadows and clear detail. Just a few minutes drive from Furnace Creek Resort.

As vast as this landscape is it is actually quite beautiful with its long road disguising such interesting landscape. I loved this road and enjoyed watching it all pass by with its unique pockets of shrub, cactus and dry sandy dirt. A desert that looks so cruel and harsh but beautiful and captivating. A must do on the way in... More
