Death Valley National Park is known for extreme conditions and extreme desert beauty, with vistas stretching from Mount Whitney’s towering crags to the lowest point in North America—the salty flats of Badwater Basin. This warm winter adventure explores wildly-colored canyons, the lunar landscape of a crater, playful sand dunes, natural hot springs, and a resort under a billion stars!
We travel south along the eastside of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, past Mt Whitney and through Owens Valley. Lunch will be hosted enroute to Furnace Creek Ranch, located in the heart of Death Valley. We arrive in the late afternoon for our two night stay. Following our check in we enjoy a hosted dinner located at the Ranch. (L,D)
Wake up this morning to a delightful breakfast followed by a guided tour of this magnificent valley. Along with our local step-on-guide we will visit world renown sites such as, Zabriskie Point, Dantes View, Devil's Golf Course, Artist's Drive, Badwater Basin, Ubehebe Crater, Death Valley Visitors Center and more. We will also be on the hunt for the exceptional display of wildflowers that only Death Valley can provide, the famous spectacular, spring wildflower display. Under perfect conditions the desert fills with a sea of gold, purple, pink or white flowers. Following our tour, we enjoy dinner at the Furnace Creek Inn. Built in 1927 Furnace Creek Inn is the perfect vantage point from which to View Death Valley National Park. After dinner we will have the opportunity to view the magnificent night sky with our local guide. Designated as the largest Dark Sky National Park in the country, Furnace Creek Resort, alongside the National Park Service, has taken measures to greatly minimize light pollution in the area. Because of this, the park is designated as a “Gold Tier” Dark Sky Park, the highest level awarded. (B,D)
We enjoy our hosted breakfast before checking out of our hotel. Travel towards home via the ghost town of Rhyolite. Founded in 1904, it had a population of over 10,000, but by 1916 the town had shut down. We will visit the ruins that are still standing today, a building made out of beer bottles, the bank building, train depot and more. Our hosted lunch stop will be at the Tonopah Station followed by a visit to the Tonopah mining museum. We arrive in Carson City and Reno in early evening. (B,L)
