While visiting Death Valley National Park, California, in the late winter of 2023, we took a little side trip to check out the Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. Ash Meadows NWR is located just over the border in Nevada, about an hour’s drive from Furnace Creek in Death Valley.

I was impressed with the modern visitor center, wooden boardwalks, numerous information plaques, and sculpted metal bridges. Surprising for such an off-the-beaten-path wildlife refuge. For more information, check out the official Ash Meadows NWR website.

While wildlife viewing this time of year was limited, the many aquamarine-colored springs and pools were beautiful! Quite the contrast to the barren desert surroundings. We enjoyed the short peaceful hikes to view the springs and ponds scattered around the refuge. I even saw some of the rare blue pupfish only found here.
