Who ever thinks Death Valley is just desert is wrong. Ok, there are beautiful sand dunes (more about that soon), salt plains and lots of pink, purple and beige rocks, but the canyons are maybe the most impressive spots to visit. Mosaic Canyon is one of them, and the name says it all: the rocks look like one big mosaic piece of art. Remember how you used to break old tiles for a school project, glue them to a piece of wood and grout them to make the surface even? Well, nature used its own million year method, but it kind of looks the same. Walk the meandering marble path all the way to the open end and enjoy this geological wonder. Best to go early to beat the heat!
