Highlights Of My Trip

Panamint Valley

The northern end of the Panamint Valley lies in Inyo County, California and stretches from the Panamint Dunes southwards to the Naval Weapons Station China Lake in San Bernardino County. The area is very barren and an ideal training area for military jets from the Nellis & Edwards AFB.

Mesquite Sand Dunes

The Sahara in miniature. Mesquite is to be found in the northern area of Death Valley and is almost totally surrounded by mountain ranges. The dunes are easily accessible from the road and due to this have been used for several movie scenes from the Star Wars series. You have to get here early in the morning if you want pictures without footprints in them ;-)

Furnace Creek

This little village is a considerably important oasis in this vast area of wilderness. Furnace Creek boasts not only a holiday resort and gas station but also its very own golf course. Yes you have read correctly, a golf course in the middle of Death Valley. Due to this growth the scarce springs have diminished over the past years as have the marshes and wetlands in the area.

Stovepipe Wells

Stovepipe Wells is another important stopover point to tank up with Gas and probably more importantly with water and other provisions from the grocery store. Stovepipe has its own hotel, saloon, restaurant, gift shop, ranger station and airport.
