On visits to the valley of death
The huge territory of the park creates a number of inconveniences. More than 13 thousand square kilometers difficult to drive around even by car.
Accordingly, there may be problems with both overnight and gasoline. Prices and on the other in the park itself. Double rooms are sold from $ 200 per day instead of the laid 30-40, the gasoline here is not lower than 6 bucks per gallon (having left for the park. Price immediately falls to standard 4 dollars).
Yes, and normal asphalt roads in the park just a few. The heat-free heat makes it also constantly remember about the thirst. Water – here also running goods.
But all these inconvenience are rewarded with amazing unearthly landscapes, original, nor not those who are disliked by local attractions and a strange sense of all the world around. As if there would be no and never had no noisy Las Vegas at 300 kilometers from coming from here, nor cheerful California, in which this national park is located.

Next, to which we noticed – Heaps of garbage and broken glass on roadside. Outside the reservation, find such a srach is difficult. This one more unpleasant feature of Indian territories.
