When I was planning my tour through death valley I didn't realise how close a lot of things are. Most attractions are off the same road so you easily go from one to the other.

This short, one-way drive takes you through some very intriguing changes in the hills, washes and canyons, including color changes in the rocks and soils.

The drive is about 4 KM long but you will be driving for around 20 min due to the slower speed.

It's a small loop with beautifully multi-coloured rocks. It's a short drive and you don't need to go too far away from your car. Death Valley is a big park so make sure you include this part on your trip.

No need to get out of the car. The scenery surrounds the car. The road is paved. Awesome views. Colors and cliffs are terrific.

The artistic drive gave us a unique and thrilling driving experience. We could enjoy the scenic views with different colours of mountain stones side-by-side. Had never seen such a scenic spot. A Must Visit Place.

take the loop road off the main road and you will be well rewarded. The road heads into the mountains for a closer view of the astounding colours; around each corner is another surprise.
