Incredible first view of things to come. The view from up here is amazing. We were even surprised by a fighter jet flying through the canyon to our left, 50 feet from us. Incredible experience. This location shows wide angle view of the valley below.

We arrived here in time for sunset. Spectacular. Drive to the end of the dirt road for the best views. We even had 2 rainbows to view. Quite hairy roads to get up and quite hairy spot for an amazing view.

On our drive, we stopped at Father Crowley Vista Point to enjoy the views. This viewpoint is on the west side of Death Valley National Park.

A quick stop off on the way into Death Valley from the west. Good views but probably not worth making a special trip to see.
