DVNP: Salt Creek and Harmony Borax Works

Our next stop was the Salt Creek Interpretive Trail.  It is hard to believe that a creek could exist in Death Valley.  Even more incredible is that there is a species called Pupfish that live in the creek, that is only found in Death Valley.  Unfortunately, they can only be seen in February/March, so there were none to be found.


The boardwalk was a nice change of pace from walking on dirt/sand/rock.



At the end, the kids were counting the planks, just like I used to count the planks on the Seal Beach pier.

Our final stop was Harmony Borax Works, the site of the old borax processing plant.  By this time, the kids were really running out of steam, but it didn’t take long to look at the old equipment.
