Ready for a day trip into the wilderness? Death Valley National Park is northwest of Las Vegas, occupying a zone between the arid Great Basin and Mojave deserts. With its diverse environment of salt-flats, sand dunes, badlands, valleys, canyons, and mountains, Death Valley is the hottest, driest, and lowest of all the national parks in the United States. The second-lowest point in the Western Hemisphere is in Badwater Basin, which is 86 metres below sea level.
Reminded of U2, when around? Yes, that's correct. Visit Zabriskie Point - the location which was used for the cover shot of Irish super-group's fifth studio album The Joshua Tree.
It was also a Joshua Tree that was shot for the cover sleeve of the same album. The tree photographed for the sleeve fell around 2000. But reportedly, the coordinates of the former place of the tree are N36 19.851 W117 44.715.

Where legends were born
Las Vegas - a city with more music heritage than most others. Nearly every renowned artist of the last decades played a show here at some point, from the Rat Pack, Liberace, and Frank Sinatra to Sammy Davis Jr., Cher, Elton John, and of course, Elvis Presley. It’s nearly impossible to turn around in this so-called Sin City without spotting an image of the King — photographs, impersonators, murals, advertisements, and neon signs over numerous wedding chapels. Still today, Las Vegas is one of the highest-paying music cities for established live acts. Also known for legendary live Jazz music at places like House of Blues.
Ironically, one of the biggest moments in Las Vegas music history involved the four lads from Liverpool, UK, who were Elvis’ rivals in 1964. Legend has it that The Beatles were paid a good amount to perform two shows in the city and that because of the local teenage hysteria, the four boys stayed in their hotel suite nearly the entire time.
Inextricably linked to the city in the Nevada desert are The Killers, a band formed in Las Vegas back in 2001 and nowadays, seen as one of the biggest Rock bands worldwide and probably the most successful Rock act to ever emerge from here.
The city has also appeared in countless songs, whether from residents or not. Some of the memorable records include Viva Las Vegas by Elvis Presley or ZZ Top, Leaving Las Vegas by Sheryl Crow, or Sin City by AC/DC.
Probably one of the best jobs in town owns the exhibits coordinator at the Hard Rock Hotel, as he procures, keeps, and displays the thousands of pieces of music memorabilia in here, from Johnny Cash’s guitars to outfits from Aerosmith and similar. Nostalgia is everywhere in this town.
