Before leaving Las Vegas I wanted to visit Death Valley and photograph a few locations. I have not been to Death Valley National Park since I was about 10 years old. So I called my buddy Barney and the trip was planned. Had I realized how close Death Valley was I would have visited there many more times before. Located about 2 hours away from Las Vegas, Death Valley offers a great location for any photographer. Death Valley is the Hottest, Driest and Lowest place in North America and you can create many types of amazing photographs.
The Devil’s Golf Course is probably the craziest landscape I have ever set foot on. The terrain is so aggressive I don’t know if anyone could cross it on foot or machine. Next is Badwater Basin, an endorheic basin in Death Valley National Park, noted as the lowest point in North America, with an elevation of 282 ft below sea level. Next we visited Scotty’s Castle and got some information about the park. I really wanted to visit a location within the park called “The Racetrack”, the ranger at Scotty’s Castle recommended that we have 2 spare tires and 10 gallons of extra fuel. We didn’t have either, so that will need to happen on my next visit. Death Valley is a huge area, and you need to plan a few days just to visit most of the areas. Time was short so I will plan for an extend stay on my next visit. I recommend a visit if you can make the trip.
