If you are driving from Reno to Las Vegas on US-95, we suggest a stop to explore Scotty’s Castle in Death Valley National Park. According to National Park Service (NPS), US-95 parallels the park from north to south with connecting highways at Scotty’s Junction (Route 267), Beatty (Route 374) and Lathrop Wells (Route 373).
Scotty’s Castle offers a glimpse into life during the Roaring ‘20s and Depression ‘30s. It is located in the green oasis of Grapevine Canyon in the far northern Death Valley. It was also known as the Death Valley Ranch during its glorious days.
The castle according to NPS was a fantasy house of Walter Scott and Albert Mussey Johnson. Today, visitors can take a living history ranger-guided tour to see the interior of Scotty’s Castle where you will see the original furnishings and learn about the original residents.
Another tour available is the Underground Tour. Visit the basement and tunnels under Scotty’s Castle. Learn how the residents have the technology to be nearly self-sufficient in this remote desert land. The tour includes a tour of the tunnel system under the castle and seeing the Pelton Water Wheel and learning how electricity was generated. Tour of the castle’s interior is recommended before taking the Underground Tour. More info at NPS.gov.
