Camping in Death Valley National Park – California 4K


Welcome to Death Valley National Park. Why would you want to go to a place
called Death Valley? Well it’s easier for me to show you. What’s up everyone we are on our way to
Death Valley National Park. Here we go. Yeah! We set off to one of the hottest
places in the world and searched for a new experience On top of that we planned to camp here. Thankfully, we were visiting in April just before the heat reaches record-breaking temperatures each year. Death Valley was named by California
gold seekers who had to risk crossing this desolate land in their quest for gold. Also, our fuel was running on low and the
first gas station that we found was completely out of gas. Yes, the entire gas
station…was out of gas. Where were we going? We arrived at night to enjoy Furnace
Creek Campground, which is one of nine campgrounds in the park. We awoke to a beautiful day the next
morning. Temperatures stayed reasonable as we
started our day Okay, so we’re getting a late start this
morning. It’s just after 10 a.m. We went by the Furnace Creek Visitor
Center. And now we’re headed to Badwater Basin to check out the salt flats. Here we go. Okay, this is the Badwater Basin in
Death Valley. It’s the lowest place below sea level in North America. Pretty amazing! Death Valley is also known for having
the highest recorded temperature on earth. And we’re here in April when it’s
a lot cooler. But as the Sun hit its peak today you can really feel its’ heat. It is hot out here! So this was our first stop. We’re on to
the next place. This is called the Devil’s Golf Course. Check it out. Behind me is the Artists Palette. It was astonishing to see all the
different colors in the mountainside. Right after, we went on the Artists Drive
and saw even more beautiful colors. Okay, we’re hiking the Golden Canyon
Trail. It’s about four miles. We’re only gonna do about a mile. So, it’s a nice little hike. It’s the most popular hike here at Death Valley. So, here we go. Now we are on Dante’s view. It’s not the highest point of Death Valley. But it’s one of the best views here. Then we raced over to catch the sunset
at Zabriskie Point. The next morning we set off to find new
activities. Okay, we’re starting off today at Zabriskie Point. Here it is. It’s not quite the super bloom that they had last year. But it’s still a bloom. Salt Creek. Okay, we are on the Salt Creek Trail hike. And one thing you don’t expect to see in Death Valley is a creek with flowing
water and let alone fish that you see all throughout it. This fish is called Pup Fish. And they’re an extinct species. So, this is one of the rare places that
you can see them. Okay, we’re headed to the Mesquite Dunes now. And the temperature has rised dramatically. It’s 95 degrees right now. So, you know, the temperature changes very fast, you know. Right when you get around the afternoon. It’s cooking here. Here we go. Okay, we’re at the Mesquite Flat Sand
Dunes. It’s the hottest time of the day. So probably not the best time to check
them out. But we’re drinking a lot of water and checking them out anyways. Careful with the snakes. Yeah be careful of snakes. Be careful with dehydration. The heat is something you
don’t want to mess with. Because right now, its kind of 93 degrees or 95. Yeah, it’s like 95 degrees right now. A lot of the moisture out here in this
high heat is actually under the sand. So, a lot of animals burrow under the sand. And you also get these bushes growing around here because of the moisture
under the sand. It’s also a good place for insects and animals and rodents and snakes and things like that to stay cool by going under the sand. So, you have to be careful because there are some snakes and things like that out here. So, we haven’t seen it yet. But there are signs you know just warning you of that We’re off-roading to Mosaic Canyon. I made it. We are in the Mosaic Canyon hiking trail. It’s about four mile round-trip. We’re just getting this, the hike started. This is subject to flash floods at times. And it can get about 20 feet of water. But The rocks are beautiful! The rock formations are like an art gallery
here. Check them out. I’ve lived in California all my life and
I’ve never been to Death Valley. It’s a National Park and I mainly see people from other countries visiting. They travel all the way here to see what’s
been so close to me. And I’ve never appreciated it until now. If you’re watching this video and able to go, I hope our trip speaks to you. Be sure to book the date of your visit. And get out to Death Valley as soon as
you can. Thanks for watching! It is, dust blowing! Even the sign said “Blowing Dust.”
