Death Valley National Park is America’s lowest, hottest, and driest national park. It encompasses mountain-size sand dunes, below-sea-level salt flats, mysterious singing rocks, and colorful sandstone canyons. Stark in appearance and haunting in name, Death Valley is a very-much-alive desert. The name doesn’t do justice to the vibrancy of Death Valley—the mysteries of the life sustained in this arid and isolated landscape capture the attention of adventurers.
Death Valley National Park is usually considered a winter park, but it is possible to visit here all year. During Spring, besides warm and sunny days, the possibility of spring wildflowers is a big attraction. If the previous winter brought rain, the desert can put on an impressive floral display, usually peaking in late March to early April.
