Famous as the spot on the cover of the U2 album "The Joshua Tree," Zabriskie Point is a geological curiosity formed by sediment from a dried-up lake. Thermal waters gave it color, and wind and lava shaped its erosion patterns. This location is named after Christian Zabriskie, vice-president of the Borax company, which had mining operations in Death Valley. The sun makes high-contrast shadows on the formations, which change over the course of the day.

Zabriskie Point Reviews
A ne pas manquer. Arriver bien tôt pour se faire une place au belvédère. Un des plus beaux lever de soleil dans l'Ouest américain ! more »Not to be missed. Arrive soon to make a place at the gazebo. One of the most beautiful sunrise in the American West!
net zoals de andere view points in Death Valley zeker even doen. Je kan met je wagen tot kort bij het punt parkeren en op weg naar Las Vegas is dit amper omweg more »Just as the other view points in Death Valley definitely do here. You can park your car up to the point and on your way to Las Vegas This is hardly a detour
Love the scenic view from this point. It's a must visit point in death valley and hard to miss it. Located near to furnace Creek springs. Wheelchair chair accessible point. It's a unique view point in death valley with white and yellow sediments all over the small mountains. Views are incredible from here. Parking is available.
The geography is beautiful both to the eye and to your heart and spirit. It is a short little hike up to nice viewing point you can see the variety of geographical forms that exist. If you choose to go for a further hike bring along some water and some good shoes enjoy the experience.
