One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen is looking down at Badwater Basin from Dantes View in Death Valley National Park. Looking down the 5760 feet in elevation change to the salt flats covering the lowest spot in North America with snow capped Telescope Peak towering behind is just breathtaking.
This view is something that should be the reward after a grueling all day hike. Instead it’s a short stroll from the parking area at the end of the 8 mile Dantes View Road.
I hope you get a taste from this video and I encourage you to see for yourself. rk
