Death Valley National Park:
Butte Valley is a beautifully-secluded spot in the southwest corner of Death Valley National Park. It descends in
elevation from about 4,500 feet on its west edge to around 3,800 feet on the eastern side. From near the middle of its
brush-covered floor rises the geologic phenomenon that inspired the area's name--a peak distinguished by
striated bands of deep browns, yellow, orange, blue, and gray that rises to an elevation of about 4,740 feet. Several
canyons pierce the mountain ranges that surround the valley on all sides, while a variety of dirt roads radiate from
near Anvil Spring, a small oasis toward the southern end of the valley, leading to various abandoned mines in the area.
