The oxidation of different metals can cause some surprising instances of beauty. This nine mile scenic one way drive will lead you through some of the most colourful rock formations in Death Valley. The drive is a bit like a ride; with lots of ups and downs and loops and turns, and it’s best stopping spot is a parking area from where you can view Artists Palette.
The colors are a result of metal oxidation (red, pink and yellow from Iron Salts, green is from Mica, and purple from the Manganese). You can even get close to the stones if you want, if you don’t mind navigating the veritable maze of paths to them.
