The Experience

California’s Desert Wonderland

The names are ominous. Death Valley. Dante’s View. Badwater. Yet there’s striking beauty. And opportunity for great pleasure. It’s almost as if someone wanted to keep it to themselves. Make you believe it’s just a mirage. But you know better. So you soak it in. The rippling sand dunes. Brilliantly colored mountains. Isolated valleys. Plants and animals thriving amid the topographic extremes and ever-changing weather. Now you’re one of them. Savoring unforgettable views. Tackling steep bike rides. And basking in the warm rays of the sun. With nothing but good omens in sight. Delight in the peacefulness of the desert Dramatic Dante’s View, offering a red-tailed hawk’s perspective on Death Valley Bike across salt flats to the lowest point in the US Amble among rock formations that look like Neapolitan ice cream Zabriskie Point, with an extraordinary panoramic view of the Panamint Range
