Amargosa River Natural Area

Near Death Valley, Tecopa Valley


Although this area is centered around a river, it has a forceful desert energy, the mountains rising up dry and forbidding in the near distance. The river itself is in Amargosa Canyon, which breaks up the dryness with dense vegetation, some of which forms hanging gardens of a kind. The river is shallow, but has a small waterfall nonetheless. Birds and bats are common sights here. This area is closed to vehicles and is best explored by foot or horseback.
