Not surprisingly, you will have trouble with reception in Death Valley. I had no cell service, but I did find one radio station.
88.9FM is a public radio station based out of Las Vegas. This was the one and only station I could find in the Valley, and it was only available in certain areas. Still, NPR! For a news junkie, like me, this was a true coup. AND, how perfect to roll along the badlands listening to "A Prairie's Home Companion"?
We were searching through my husbands old family photos and we came across several photos showing his ancestors mining for gold at Furnace Creek in Death Valley. It was pretty amazing to see these photos after having been there ourselves.
In Death Valley it's common to see photographers with huge lenses and tripod shooting the scenery. The most popular spot has to be the sand dunes near Stovepipe Wells at sunset. Other popular spots include Zabriskie Point, Salt Flats, and others. The photo shows Ubehebe Crater.
