Route 08/15 of a three-week tour through the west of America, from Death Valley to Mesquite.
Departure from our overnight address in Stovepipe Wells (Death Valley) in a southeastern direction through the Death Valley National Park. The first stop is at Furnace Creek, past RP 2 to the right, where you can find the Visitor Center, the Borax Museum, a gas station and restaurant. There is also a large thermometer with the current temperature in Death Valley.
At RP 3 you have beautiful views of Zabriskie Point. A pastel-colored wavy dune landscape where almost nothing lives.
On RP 4 we pass the Death Valley Sign, after which we drive through Death Valley Junction via SR 127 (CA) and the SR 373 (NV) to Amargosa Valley.
As you can already see from the road numbers, we pass the state line between California and Nevada.
At RP 5 you will find the Area 51 Alien Travel Center, a gas station, shop, restaurant and even brothel with the theme "Aliens".
Via the Veterans Memorial HWY (95) we drive towards Las Vegas. This time, however, we leave this city on the right side to return again at a later time.
Via Interstate 15 we drive in a northeastern direction. We leave the Interstate at Crystal to visit the Valley of Fire. Along the way there are several beautiful viewpoints! We drive into the park to Parking # 3 (RP 12) to make a short walk to the "Fire Wave". After this park visit we drive via Stateroute 169 and Interstate 15 towards the end point for today.
