This was one of our favorite parts of Death Valley. The colors are varied and unlike anything else. As a note, there is a parking lot. You may initially see cars parked along the road, but I would suggest going to the parking lot. If you are able to, it is well worth it to go explore around once you are here. Some of the paths are steep and challenging, but there are some easier paths too.

The side trip from the main road to Badwater along Artist's Drive is a nice and fairly short diversion. Of course the highlight is Artist's Palette, which will only take a few minutes to view, and you can see it right from the parking area just off the road. The rest of the drive is pleasant and occasionally quite interesting as it goes through some of the tighter spots in this badlands area.

The most colorful part of the park that we saw. The oxidized minerals gave such beauty to the hills/mounds. Use the small pull off/parking lot to get up close views. You will not be disappointed

Well, you’ll find it here as the colors blend from one to another. Each view opens a new perspective of how beautiful this planet we call home is.

Artist's Palette is an area where oxidized minerals have created amazing colorful hills. There is a small parking area along Artist's Drive, which doesn't have many other places to pull over. The hills are visible from the overlook, but we scrambled down and climbed around in the hills, there are a number of paths to get around. It's absolutely beautiful, recommend arriving early or late in the day for best lighting. A must-see if visiting Death Valley.

Death Valley is a must see! Plan for two days, you really can’t see it all in one day with winter’s early sunsets. We visited in January.

The Artist’s palette is a must see stop while you are in Death Valley. There is a nose drive off of the road to Badwater. There are stops and overlooks along the way.

My son and I drove out to Artist's Palette on our visit to Death Valley. Artist's Palette is an area in Death Valley where the mountain side is many different colors. The colors are created by the various minerals that are in the sands and rocks. Most photos don't quite capture the colors. Seeing them in person helped me to see how many different colors were there. It is a very beautiful place and it is easy to visit in Death Valley.

It was cool, don't get me wrong. But as I put in my review of Artists Drive, during the day we visited the drive was more entertaining than the actual vantage point. I have seen, photos, however, and know how beautiful it can be. Maybe next time we will go for sunset.
