Many of us who remember the 1950s, remember Ronald Reagan hosting “Death Valley Days,” a TV western sponsored by 20-Mule Team Borax. That’s what we knew of Death Valley then — desolate vistas, unrelenting heat and borax. Well, prepare to be surprised by the beauty of this amazing out-of-the-way National Park filled with incredible history, geologic mystery and, fingers-crossed, wildflowers! Our personal guides are renowned, southwestern geologist Bob Scarborough and native plant guru, landscape designer and artist, Greg Corman.
Some of the high, and low, points of our travels include the Valley panorama from mile-high Dante’s View down to Badwater Basin, the lowest point in North America at 282’ below sea level; long-abandoned borax works and the ghost towns of Rhyolite and Leadfield; the twists and curves of Titus Canyon, the shifting dunes of Mesquite Flats and, of course, Ubehebe Crater!
Hosted by Stephen Bernier and South of the Border Tours, we’ll be spending three nights at the Ranch at Furnace Creek with its western-themed grounds, and first and last nights in Henderson and Laughlin respectively.
Cost of this all inclusive travel ed-venture includes motorcoach and van transportation, accommodations, activities/fees, guide services and all meals. A $500 deposit holds your spot!
