Death Valley is probably one of the most wonderful place I have ever seen in my entire life so far! It was for sure the national park I liked the most on our trip. There are no words to describe this breathtaking land and don’t let its name fool you, you won’t die there. At least if your car have the air conditioning and if you bring some water. I mean a lot of water!
I adored absolutely everything about this place and every point of view is even more spectacular the one than the others, but my absolute favorites are Zabriskie point, Artists palette and dante’s view. Also, we had the most craziest ride at the Twenty Mule Team Canyon winding through otherworldly badlands. Disneyland is nothing compare to this wild and natural attraction.
On our way to death Valley we stopped at Lone Pine, a small town from the gold rush era which is located just 65 miles west from the park. We wandered downtown where we saw an original saloon and then we ate a delicious cheeseburger with a homemade iced tea at the Totem cafe. We just spent 1 hour or so there but I really advice you to stay at least half a day as there are plenty of exciting things to do and see that we sadly missed out!
Indeed, since the 20’s Lone Pine and more particularly the nearby Alabama Hills, has been a famous location to shoot western films (more than 300), commercials and tv shows. For all the cinema-lovers go visit the Museum of Western Film History and see its amazing collection of real movie costumes, movie cars, posters, and other souvenirs, then take the self-guided tour of movie road to have a look at real shooting locations of a great many motion pictures.
