What are some other beautiful places to visit in Nevada?
In terms of otherworldly beauty, Death Valley is one of the most sublime and intriguing places in the country. Situated on the border of California and Nevada, Death Valley is a land of extremes: it's the hottest, driest, and lowest-elevation national park in the country. Unique geographical features such as the salt flats, which stretch for 200 square miles, seemingly endless sand dunes, and sedimentary badlands form the landscape of Death Valley, creating a landscape that's wholly unique and uncanny. Its skies, too, are superlative; with little in the way of light pollution, Death Valley is an amazing place for stargazing -- and, in fact, this national park is the third designated International Dark Sky Park in the country!
An underrated gem, Nevada's Black Rock Desert is a truly bizarre place that's worth going out of your way to see. As one of the state's most wonderful surprises, Fly Geyser is a must-see destination. Located on a 3,800-acre parcel of land that is owned by the Burning Man Project, Fly Geyser is a sight unlike anything you've seen before. The geyser itself flaunts flamboyant shades of red, yellow, and green while shooting hot water up to five feet in the air!
