National park tips: This rugged Death Valley road is a white-knuckle challenge for four-wheelers
There are plenty of rugged roads in Death Valley National Park, but Titus Canyon is a standout. The route squiggles and the mountains squeeze together around you until you begin to doubt your car can fit.
As you navigate, ask yourself who could ever have lived in Leadfield, the ghost town that turns up along the way.
In honor of this year’s National Park Service centennial, the Travel section is posting 100 park travel ideas and tips based on trips staff travel writer Christopher Reynolds has taken, along with photo-op advice from Times photographer Mark Boster. We’ll post one per day through Dec. 31.
