If you want to explore a magical place of gemstone mountains, waterfalls, narrow slot canyons, salt flats and majestic sand dunes, take a journey into the remote world of Death Valley. This journey is for the adventurous spirit, one who is seeking a new experience of endurance and solitude in a world where the average temperature rises above 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
I had no idea when I decided to go hiking and camping in Death Valley that I was traveling deeply into an unknown world, a land so uniquely different and beautiful that it often left me breathless as I hiked up mountain peaks, practiced yoga watching the sunrise in the barren desert, rock scrambled through narrow slot canyons, hiked to a beautiful green waterfall and ran laughing down giant sand dunes.
I will never forget the sound of silence I experienced in Death Valley. A silence that I have never known before that created a stillness deep within my soul; a remote world where only the sound of your heartbeat and the whispering winds can be heard.
If you are not into camping, there is a lodge in Death Valley where you can stay that has a swimming pool and hotel amenities where you don’t have to rough it, but either way, it’s a place to experience if you are seeking a journey off the beaten path.
