The National Park did a great job with the Artists Palette one way drive made easier to visit all the spots. Artists Drive and Artists Palette are must-see attractions in the Death Valley National Park. The color of the canyons is unique and definitely worth seeing. Nature has formed the colors and vista over millions of years resulting from the mineral deposits. Formed by volcanic activity, you'll find blue, green, purple, white, and yellow hills and mounds. The rock in the picture is one of the examples of the countless number of colorful formations in this area. Make sure you get out and go for a good walk around and climb the rocks to get the best views of the different colors of rocks.
