Death Valley National Park Scotty's Castle

Nestled deep in an oasis-like canyon in Northern Death Valley National Park lies Death Valley Ranch, or as it is better known Scotty's Castle. A historical home showcasing technological innovation and unequaled craftsmanship in a remote desert location. A place full of the mystery surrounding an incomparable friendship that resulted in the creation of a $2 million dollar vacation home. Today the site is owned and operated by the National Park Service.

Moonlight anywhere is a delight. But there's no moonlight in the world that can compare with the moonlight in Grapevine Canyon, our desert canyon, where the Castle stands . Last night the moon was at its full, and we went out on the upper porch and looked down the Canyon and across Death Valley. There are some things one cannot put into words, emotions, that surge through the heart; scenes, that fill us, and thrill us, and woo us; such was the scene that we looked upon last night. Something about the clear desert atmosphere seems to make the moonlight brighter than anywhere else in the world, and to glorify it. And the great mountains rise in the splendor of it all. Moonlight in the Desert! You may have cities and electric lights, movies, dancing parties, and surging crowds; but, for a thrill, an emotion, a sense of peace, and a confidence in a God who cares, give me moonlight in the Desert.
