We did a memorable travel to visit several top attractions nearby Los Angles and Death Valley and Northen Deserts this weekend, and share with you some our experience there. Transfer to Los Angeles, the largest metropolitan area in California. Stop by the historical landmarks of Hollywood, as well as Hollywood Blvd., Chinese Theater and Dolby Theater complex which is now the permanent home for the Oscars and the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Goldwell Museum - Death Valley - Just outside of Rhyolite, Nevada, a spectacular ghost town off the road leading to Death Valley, California, an unlikely group of prominent Belgian artists created a self-described art situation consisting of seven outdoor sculptures that are colossal not only in their scale, but in their placement within the vast upper Mojave desert.
Death Valley: Official Page - Death Valley National Park: The Official National Park Information Page - Official Death Valley Site
Death Valley: Janet's Tourist Information - "Unofficial" tourist information for Death Valley and the area. Maintained by the Maturango Museum in Ridgecrest, CA, near Death Valley. Contains tips and news for those planning a visit to the area, including information concerning roads, weather and tourist attractions.
Rhyolite Ghost Town - Some of the remnants of this former mining down in Death Valley near the Nevada border are still standing. A house made of bottles was restored in 1925. More Rhyolite Info.
Maturango Museum - Museum of the cultural history, natural history and geology of the Northern Mojave Desert emphasizing our Indian Wells Valley. Located in Ridgecrest, CA. (There are more museums in the Museums links section.)
Feline Conservation Center - Also known as the Cat House, this refuge is located in Rosamond (about 1.5 hour drive north of LA on Highway 14). Cat lovers of all ages who discover this desert zoo north of Los Angeles are surprised and amazed at the variety of wild cat species found here. We are dedicated to the protection and preservation of the world's endangered felines.
Digital Desert - A virtual tour of the southwestern Mojave and the bordering forest mountain regions. There are nearly 5,000 photo/pages. Ghost towns, rivers, ranches, roads, monuments, fishing holes, springs, interesting rock formations, wild flowers, aerial photos, more. Interactive maps let you locate a specific region then see photos of the area.
