While its namesake in Death Valley National Park gets all the attention, this multicolored formation (which I named) on the long road from Soldier Meadows to Hardin City is seldom visited. This is one of those wonderful way-in-the-outback Nevada roads that meanders through landscapes alternately forlorn and breathtaking. You will likely not see another vehicle all day. It’s a good idea to have a second spare tire, or an emergency inflation aerosol can. And lots of water.
