Zabriskie Point

Updated: Apr 20, 2022

Why a Wonder: A landscape filled with shapes, patterns and colors that is unlike any other you may see on the planet.


Where: Death Valley National Park in Southeastern California.


When: January or February, when the temperatures are much cooler than they are in summertime.



Photography: The main photo spot is a short walk from the parking lot, but there are also paths that lead down to the bottom of the basin. A 24-105mm and a 70-200mm lens will help you tell the story of this landscape masterpiece.


For predawn photographs, you'll need a tripod to steady your camera, and a headlamp to see where you are going.


Sunrise (shown here) is the idea time to go, but sunset can be good, too.
