  • We saw the phenomenon close to Pantamint Springs at Dry Lakebed Road. The ground feels like leather--so cool.

  • You have to be kind of a nerd to appreciate what is here. The trip out is half the fun. I would recommend that you rent a jeep - even if you have a four wheel suv, as the road is quite long and...

  • Gorgeous place with a horrible 22miles of road. No asphalt, only rocks and sand! You can go fast as 5 or 10 miles per hour. Please see pictures to check if your car will be able to drive there. High clearance 4x4 cars very recommended .
  • After hearing about the place, we planned to go during our Death Valley trip. It’s a 27 miles, which will take 1h30 to go. (One way). There is not place to rest or restrooms. The drive is pretty hard, only recommend for high clearance vehicles. But the drive is worth it. The spot is so peaceful, so quiet and so unique. If you want to see the rocks, you have to continue to the south entrance. There are only few rocks. Don’t imagine you will see hundreds of rocks.
