Don’t let its name deceive you! Death Valley’s monstrous mountain peaks, sprawling saltpans, and deep, colorfully hued canyons offer the perfect playground for hikers, cyclists, 4-wheel enthusiasts, and geology-buffs.

• Relish in the golden hues and graceful curves of the Mesquite Sand Dunes at sunset
• Tear through Titus Canyon by four-wheel Jeep, winding down narrow paths and past towering cliffs
• Enjoy the sprawling overlook at Dante’s View before saddling up for a 25-mile cruise down Coffin Mountain
• Savor an afternoon of leisure at Furnace Creek Resort, a true desert oasis, opting for a round of golf, a massage, or a rejuvenating swim in a spring-fed pool

Golden and pink hued hills; deep, cool canyons; sprawling, white salt flats; and striking sand dunes at sunset, all with a nightly base at Furnace Creek Resort, an oasis in the middle of the desert. Highly recommended!"
