On our drive, we stopped at Father Crowley Vista Point to enjoy the views. This viewpoint is on the west side of Death Valley National Park.

A quick stop off on the way into Death Valley from the west. Good views but probably not worth making a special trip to see.

Well worth the stop at the overlook! The view is glorious and there are restrooms at the parking lot. A sign there mentions that military jets frequently fly over the park to practice their skills...we wish we had seen some while we were there! :)

Good stop for pictures, but not in the same league as Zabriskie Point or Artists Pallette. We did get a fighter jet fly over while we were in the parking lot though!

This is easily accessible by auto right next to road. Great view. Terrific combination of colors in one area. Dark lava in one area and multiple colors in others. Short trail out on the point. Don't miss
