WHAT TO EXPECT:
Our trip begins in Las Vegas where the guides will meet you and whisk you away to the Furnace Creek Ranch, about two and one-half hours and a world away. While in Death Valley, we will undertake a series of short hikes and all-day hikes in order to gain an overview of what the Park has to offer. As we explore such places as Mosaic Canyon, Golden Canyon, Artist’s Palette, Devil’s Golf Course, Mesquite Sand Dunes and Scotty’s Castle, we begin to get a feel for the geologic and human history of the Park. No visit to the Park is complete without a walk on the Badwater salt flats, the lowest point in the lower 48 states at 282 feet below sea level. It is all uphill from there!
On our final full day, uphill we will hike to Wildrose Peak (9,064 ft.) gaining a bird’s eye view of the mysteriously beautiful world we have enjoyed all week.
