From Furnace Creek it is about a 60 mile drive along highway 190. The trip itself has beautiful scenery all along the way. You go from a couple hundred feet below sea level to 5000 feet above. You ca make a food, gas, supplies & souvenirs at the little town of Stovepipe Wells. We ended at "Father Crowley's View" atop... 更多

The trail is... 更多
