Quite cool rock formations unlike anything that we have seen before. The road there was bumpy and could have been better. When looking around, watch your step carefully. This place was well named.

The attraction requires about a half mile drive on a dirt road. Based off of previous TripAdvisor reviews, my expectations were pretty low. We arrived around 1pm and there were about 6 other cars there. The landscape is definitely unique and the signage with the...More

Absolutely amazing place. It does not take a lot of time to appreciate its uniqueness. Just by looking around it feels like you are not on Earth. One of the most remarkable places in the Death Valley, which is very conveniently located.
