Golden Canyon Blessing
"An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day." ~ Henry David Thoreau
Golden Canyon is a favorite hike in Death Valley because of all of the colors and endless shapes and contours of the eroded badlands. The hike up the canyon is a popular one because it showcases what Death Valley is all about: stark barren beauty. And it is an easy and rewarding hike, even if you simply walk a few hundred feet into the canyon from your vehicle. The bottom line, a visit to Death Valley should include a small or long hike into Golden Canyon -- and the experience of it is a marvelous blessing for the rest of your visit.
