In our last big day in Death Valley, we decided to do Fall Canyon.
It was about eight miles round trip, with an elevation gain of about 1,300
feet. The canyon was incredibly deep, with towering walls hundreds

The hike actually starts at the mouth of Titus Canyon, where there's a
small parking lot. From there, we had to walk about a mile to the
mouth of Fall Canyon:

After the group photo, we entered Fall Canyon. The sheer walls of
the canyon were incredibly high.
After 3.4 miles and 1,300 feet of elevation gain, we got to the 18 foot
high falls that mark the end of the first stage of the hike:
I found a path around the falls. I took this picture from above the
fall, looking down on Mom and Dad.
On the way down, I took some more pictures:
About a mile down from the falls, we found a side canyon. About a
quarter of a mile up the canyon, we came to a 13 foot fall:
After the canyon, it was 2.3 miles back to the car at the mouth of Titus
