Spectacular Dantes View

Image
It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around.

Exploring Zabriskie Point

 It was a great time to visit and explore Zabriskie Point, a little bit chilly but not crowded. From Pahrump, Nevada to Zabriskie Point parking lot in Death Valley National Park California is about 56 miles. It was an easy nice drive to there. We saw some wild horses on the way and that was cool.  Zabriskie Point is our first stop in our journey to Death Valley National Park Californiae. 

A short uphill walk to the viewpoint on a pavement path offers a stunning panoramic views of the landscape all around. Even though it was not sunrise nor sunset when we arrived at Zabriskie Point, we still enjoyed the beauty of area. It's very easy to get here and it's a must stop. Watch our little video to learn about the area and see more of the Zabriskie Point.
