Simply put, few places anywhere provide a setting that is as relaxing as Alvord Hot Springs. Located at the eastern base of Steens Mountain and on the western edge of the Alvord Desert, the hot soaking pools, rustic structure, and wooden deck invite all visitors to rest and enjoy the expansive views and crisp desert air. In this isolated region of the U.S., time seems to stand still, and many hours can pass before you'll be ready to get out of the pools and dry off.
Death Valley Scenic Byway is located inside Death Valley National Park, the hottest place in North America. The byway cuts across the park following an 81-mile route from the western entrance to the eastern edge. The desert scenery is unique and beautiful with mosaic colors, sand dunes and panoramic hilltop views. Drive straight through in 2 hours or spend a day hiking and exploring this unforgettable national park.
