Hottest, Driest, Lowest: A superlative desert of streaming sand dunes, snow-capped mountains, multicolored rock layers, water-fluted canyons and 3 million acres of wilderness. Full of nature and history, there are endless activities in the park. About the size of the state of Connecticut, one can spend weeks exploring Death Valley and only scratch the surface of what there is to see and do.
We had a cloudy day, so sun and heat were not issues for us. As most of the hike is wide open on gravel or sand, we were grateful for the lack of sun. However, once in the narrow canyon where the stream was, it would have been nice to have some sun. The waterfalls make the trek well worth it.
Came here in the beginning of January. Lots of people the first mile or so in. Dead ends to a small dry waterfall. Super cool smooth rocks to climb over, subtle gradual incline. Good for most levels and also for those who like to get adventurous clamoring over rocks!
