Stark contrasts between mountains, canyons, and desert; vast and majestic vistas, brilliant fall colors set against muted desert hues, and sparkling white dunes all combine to offer opportunities for personal renewal and inspiration. Consider including a visit to one or more of these special locations along with your other planned activities.
Salt Basin Dunes
Located on the remote west side of the park, these striking dunes cover nearly 2,000 acres.
Dog Canyon lies in a secluded, forested canyon on the north end of the park at an elevation of 6,300 feet.
Here, a single, well-preserved house, long since abandoned, stands as a testament of human struggle and survival.
