Favorite thing: visit the famed Zabriskie Point. Apart from being the source of inspiration for some artists (from the homonymous Michelangelo Antonioni's movie with the soundtrack played by the Pink Floyd, to one of the U2's 'Joshua Tree' album photos...), this spot shall provide you one of the most 'desolate' and at a time wonderful sights over the Valley panorama. Just below the sightseeing point is the Golden Canyon, formed by astonishing colorful rocks rounded by erosion; you can also enjoy an astonishing view of The Furnace Creek formation badlands. Beyond the rocks you can get a first glimpse of the great central dry basin in which are the Devil's Golf Course (see below) and the salt pool of Badwater (see below).
Favorite thing: The Ashford Mill ruins are located 44 miles south of Furnace Creek alongside highway 178. The mill was built in 1914 to process ore from a mine in the Black Mountains.
Favorite thing: In this area where saltwater lakes once flowed, salt crystals remain as remnants of another time when conditions weren't quite so harsh.
