  • WOW. Who knew Death Valley had such mountains. You'll cross the mountains and wind through the switchbacks until you arrive at the top. Read the stories and enjoy the scene. We were lucky enough.....  more

  • The Panamint Mountains make up a rugged range within Death Valley National Park. The range provides nice backdrop for photos within the valley for those on short visits who will be sticking to the popular sightseeing spots within the park. You can see the Panamint Mountains from popular stops such as Badwater Basin and Furnace Creek to the east of the range and from Stovepipe Wells Village just north of the mountains. You'll also see the range for quite some distance of the Panamint Valley Road west of the national park. We were able to see a bit of snow on the peaks of the Panamint Range. That was neat considering the high temperatures on the valley floor. There are some roads, hikes and old mines near the range. Unfortunately our time in Death Valley was too short to venture beyond the normal sightseeing spots within the park. A visit to the NPS website and viewing maps of Death Valley reveals how visitors can spend time exploring areas close to the range if interested.
  • Not only can you visit Death valley, there is also Lonepine Film museum, and an Japenese internment camp just north on 395, made many trips from my property in Baja to Tahoe on this route, Love it.
