Located on the boarder between southern California and Nevada, east of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Death Valley National Park is known for its extremes. From weather temperatures to sand dunes near the salt flats, that are surrounded by the splashes of red rock amongst the yellow hues of volcanic and sediment hills – the environment offers a staggering array of terrain within such a small area. Do not forget that Badwater (salt flats) is also the lowest place in the western hemisphere.
We visited Death Valley two days after our California wedding. If we could enjoy it during the summer heat with two sets of in-laws, believe me, you will have a magnificent trip too! Due to the summer heat, we did not take any long hikes. However, there are plenty of beautiful drives and gorgeous outlooks.
