All of Death Valley is fascinating, but the salt formations here are so different and interesting. The road is pretty bumpy and dusty, but it's worth it to get out and see the strangely beautiful landscape.

Played golf on a unique course being below sea level. Started early but was 114 by the time we got off. The greens were a little too long and seemed to not be well groomed.

This was a great stop on our tour of Death Valley. It is an interesting view of crystallized salt and the impact. It is a quick stop, but it is worth the time. The overall park is fantastic to visit!
