  • One of the easy stops to make while in Death Valley. The loop is short and offers some great views up and down the valley. For those who enjoy photography, this is a less frequented stop that you can use to setup some interesting shots at.
  • Former borax plant in the Nevada desert. Around 1884, borax was dug here, which was then brought to Furnace Creek in long mule wagonloads. It's already very hot for visitors here, just imagine the conditions under which workers and mules lived here ... Well worth a visit. Just a few steps from the parking lot. Various information boards explain borax mining here in the Nevada desert.
