Death Valley Ride – Furnace Creek Ranch

Furnace Creek - Death Valley California

Furnace Creek - Death Valley California

We spent our two nights at Death Valley staying at the Furnace Creek Ranch. It was a very nice resort. A big step up from camping in Mojave Desert the previous two nights.

Furnace Creek Ranch has a large General Store, a bicycle shop, several restaurants, and a saloon. The Corkscrew Saloon was our meeting spot for a few drinks before dinner. They also have some nice appetizers. We had breakfast and one dinner at the Forty Niner Cafe. Food was good, especially if you are looking for something quick and relatively inexpensive. We also had dinner at the Wrangler Steakhouse. It was very nice, although rather expensive. However, I was surprise that despite the captive audience in the middle of Death Valley, the resort didn’t seem to gouge the tourists too much.

 


 

Also at the resort is the 20 Mule Team Museum. The museum includes the original 20 Mule Team Barn, and many pieces of equipment from the era, such as a 20 Mule Team Borax Wagon, an ox cart, and several stage coaches.
