Drove up from the Mojave, through Baker, about 225 miles. See map for route and roads. Death Valley is a LOT more interesting than I ever thought it would be. Nearly 100 miles long and 282' below sea level. It is fascinating, awesome and astounding. Superlatives fail. The rock formations, colors... just incredible. Drove to Dante's View... 5400' feet... amazing view of the valley! Zabrieski Point was awesome. Badwater the lowest place in the western hemisphere! Scotty's Castle was beautiful with a fascinating history. Hiked Golden and Mosaic Canyons. Saw sand dunes. Sunset Campground at Furnace Creek was pretty basic and sucky... huge. Texas Spring a bit better, smaller... but mostly tenters. Same deal up at Stovepipe Wells. Mesquite Spring up by Scott's Castle was smaller and nice but kinda out-of-the-way. There are also a couple more remote camps up in the mountains, more for summer... 8000' or so. There is a very expensive Inn... several restaurants, a golf course. Wonderful place! You could easily spend a month there exploring all the possibilities.
