See some of the most picturesque sights that Death Valley National Park has to offer on . The winding, 14.5 km (9 mi) long road takes you past impressive rock formations and the multicolored hillsides of the Artist's Palette. Volcanic activity and metal oxidation painted the hills in various shades of red, pink, yellow, green, and purple. The one-way road features safe places to pull off to admire the view, take pictures, or explore on foot. Even though the road is relatively short, the drive can take some time; its many curves may limit your speed, and many visitors prefer to drive slowly to take in the sights.

I guess I never knew/dreamed rocks could come in so many different colors, even more so right next to each other. The drive is quick, winding, but oh so cool with the variations in size & shapes... more »
Definitely worth taking this little drive up against the hills. Beautiful colors and lots of great views. more »
