Once we were done with Death Valley, we drove to our hotel in Neveda and came upon this amazing place.
They were already closed so we went back the next day and learned a bunch about the pupfish that is unique to particular ponds (springs) and is considered endangered.
Ash Meadows in Amargosa Valley, NV is just on the other side of the border when coming from California (part of Ash Meadows is actually managed by Death Valley NPS) and is truly beautiful. There is lots of wildlife and the swings boast gorgeous colors. Ash Meadows is home to an incredible number of endemic species (found there and nowhere else on earth) whether they be plants or animals.
