Just Ok

I loved Death Valley but this stop wasn't really worth it. It is a steep hike to the top and you can't really see much.

Quick Stop in Death Valley
May 2021
This was our first stop in Death Valley and it was a good intro. There's a short, but steep, hike from the parking lot to an outlook. We wondered around a bit and took pictures. It's a great place to stop for a break.

It is named in honor of Christian Zabriskie of the Pacific Coast Borax Company.
From Zabriskie Point, we saw:
- y- yellow and brown stripped hills, which are composed of thick deposits of fine silts, clays and volcanic ashfalls and lava flows, deposited as sediments in prehistoric lakes (3 to 5 million years ago), as well as ancient. We learnt these once level layers are being tilted by seismic actvity and pressure. As the layers uplifted and were exposed, periodic rainstorms cause powerful gullywashers that erode the soft rocks into chaotic and very strange landscape!
- Manly Beacon, which is 823 ft high over sea level; Manly Beacon was the name of one of the first gold rush pioneers in the area!
- the badlands, including salt flats in the background.

A unique landscape!

Ground Zero for DV
Apr 2021
Best views of the valley and great place to watch the sunset and do short hike (or longer). In our 2 days in DV we made 2 visits. Colors change with the setting sun

Beautiful natural formations
Apr 2021
Considering Death Valley is the lowest point in the US, Zabriskie Point is actually up a short hike and has good views from up top. The natural formations are beautiful and the sunlight creates interesting colors on the formations. The hike is not too strenuous and can be done by kids too.

Great Sunrise Spot
Apr 2021
It's a steep but short, paved walk up to the point. It was beautiful to see the sunrise from there. Remember that the sun rises later over the mountains. We had to wait over an hour, but it was worth while!

Surprised at the beauty
Apr 2021
This National Park exceeded our expectations.

Honestly, we expected a boring desert with sage brush and sand...kind of like driving there. However, once you get into the park, it becomes so much more scenic.

We were pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed this NP. While it was not on our list of 'Must See's', I think it should have been, and should be for you.

Worth the Drive
Apr 2021
It's only 29 miles on paved road from Stovepipe Wells, where we stayed. Great place, by the way. From the parking lot, it's about 100 yards at a slight incline on paved walkway. Definitely worth it.
