Driving Down the Death Valley: America's Driest and Lowest

Driving Down the Death Valley: America’s Driest and Lowest

Bryan captures a different kind of beauty while driving down America's driest and lowest point. Join him on his adventure in Death Valley, California.

If you are around the west coast of USA, making a trip to Las Vegas, you should not miss out on visiting the Death Valley. It is the lowest and driest point in North America and offers a different kind of beauty compared to famous Yellowstone National Park.

I got to the Death Valley via the California State Road 190 from Las Vegas. You can be driving for miles and miles without seeing a single soul around, and that may leave you wondering the consequences of your car breaking down in the middle of the desert.

Despite it’s name, Death Valley is actually home to sheep, reptiles, amphibians and more than 300 species of birds! Many scenes from  the Star Wars franchise have been filmed in the Death Valley – the Sandcrawler scene and the Droid scenes from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

The allure of the West Coast in the US is not limited to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas and San Francisco. For those who enjoy the outdoors, the Yosemite National Park – and Death Valley – are places you should definitely visit. Get in on the fun and research on travel packages to the West Coast!
