Death Valley – Devils Golf Course

Heading north away from Natural Bridge, the next stop at Devils Golf Course offers no hiking but does offer some spectacular views.

Why is it called the Devils Golf Course?  The jagged surface made of halite salt crystals are so rough, a historical NPS guide book stated “Only the devil could play golf” on its surface.  I’m inclined to agree.

Not even Happy Gilmore can out-drive the vast basin of rough terrain.  Yet another amazing, odd, and unique place in Death Valley.

Coming from the relatively flat elevations of the Midwest, mountain views never cease to amaze.  Thankfully there is more hiking ahead so onward I go!  One last photo for the road.
