Taken From: Seven Tips for Traveling Solo in Death Valley

(published 5/9/2022)


"Death Valley is the largest US national park outside of Alaska, encompassing over 3,000 square miles of desert in California and Nevada. You can drive for hours without seeing a single car or human, just endless expanses of sand and rock with nothing man-made in sight. Bouncing up and down on these desert roads, you can imagine yourself to be a space explorer, or perhaps an extra in “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

"While there’s nothing wrong with a little binge-watching, try swapping out your tv time with a short nature outing. No matter where you live, you’ll find some little piece of nature ready for you to explore. Whether they are hidden botanical gardens in the city, the majestic peaks at Garden of the Gods, a picnic at your local park, or a nearby day hike, these small activities can yield significant boosts to your mental health."

"Ready for something bigger? Look into longer vacation travel or farther destinations. Getting out of your daily routine can give you a new perspective and boost your self-esteem. Travel often puts you out into nature, too. Depending on where you go, there will be trails to hike, paths to cycle, cafes to enjoy outdoors, and sites to explore."

(published 5/31/2022)


"In speaking with current and former park officials, we’ve found that many people tend to be either unaware of the requirement for obtaining a backcountry permit for hiking/camping, or unfamiliar with the process by which to obtain one. Please consider this article as a resource to help lay out some important considerations, and ideally clear up some of the confusion surrounding backcountry permitting."
