Most all of our trips encompass desert. Why? Las Vegas was built on an ant hill IN the desert and what you'll find in Death Valley California is just that - DESERT. Flat long boring roads where the ground on the flats is so dry it's cracked. There's really only one time to visit Death Valley CA., and it's in early to late spring. Based on this, IF we've had a bit of rain in the valley then you'll see valleys of gorgeous yellow flowers blooming that last only for a few weeks. So, timing is an important factor for the blooming fields of flowers at Death Valley.

In the words of Death Valleys own National Park Service:
Death Valley: The name is forbidding and gloomy. Yet here you can find colorful badlands, snow-covered peaks, beautiful sand dunes, rugged canyons, and the hottest, driest and lowest spot in North America.

On any given summer day, the valley floor shimmers silently in the heat. For five months of the year unmerciful heat dominates the scene, and for the next seven the heat releases its grip only slightly. Rain rarely gets past the guardian mountains, but the little rain that does fall is the life force of the wildflowers that transform the desert into a vast garden.


What are some of the attractions.

In all reality, visiting Death Valleys small attractions would be better suited as a bus tour than a bike ride but it can be done. Many long straight roads. :sleep:

We have no interest in promoting bus tours or bike tours to this dry desolate waste land. We have every destination around our area including S. Utah and many others covered by maps and all free of charge. I would suggest Googling the area if your interested in it. If this is the guy who keeps promoting your bus spam tours you'll be deleted along with your post.

Did you know that:- The Panamint Mountains are the largest and highest in Death Valley National Park. Flanked by the vast depth of Death Valley to the east and
Panamint Valley to the west, they stand alone in grand isolation. This biological island differs dramatically from the low desert.
