Salt Creek Trail, Death Valley National Park: 9 reviews and 17 photos
One of the most interesting residents in the Salt Creek Area is the Death Valley Pupfish. This tiny fish does not exist anywhere outside the park, another good example of how nature can adapt to almost any environment. When I was here in May 2010, there were quite a few of them in the creek. They got the name "pupfish" because one observer noted they "play together like puppies". They were fun to watch; but hard to photograph.
Address: P.O. Box 579, Death Valley, California 92328
Directions: The Salt Creek parking area is one mile off the main road through the park, Highway 190.
