Description
Hotel guests enjoy the swimming pool at the Furnace Creek Inn in Death Valley. The pool is enclosed by a brick wall which includes a fireplace and open arches one can view through to the surrounding mountains and desert. Guests swim in the pool and lounge in chairs on the grass at the poolside. Palm trees stand next to the wall at the long end of the pool. The hotel opened in 1927.
