Artist Drive or Artists Palette is a small road in Death Valley, off the main 178, and the inner direction to the mountain which winds through the canyon. The road is narrows and entertaining, in good condition, but is only one direction, that is, back out to the 178, and 15 miles long. Do not miss the mineral pigments from volcanic stones which create very intense colors. The iron produces reds, pinks and yellows, the decomposition of the mica makes the green and manganese creates purple and violet. You should visit at sunset.
