Darwin Falls

My friend, Sarah, and I hiked out to Darwin Falls one day a couple of weeks ago. It's about an hour and a half drive from Furnace Creek and then a good twenty minute hike, but well worth it. Andrew and I have not been here since our first season in 2007. It's amazing a lush place like this exists in Death Valley.

Beautiful Darwin Falls

I've been told that if you climb up the rock walls behind the falls there are several more cascading falls. Hopefully, we'll get to those one of these days. I want to go back and check the area out more in a couple of more weeks because there is supposed to be a Stream Orchid that blooms here.
