Golden Canyon is one of those places in Death Valley that is picturesque in its own right but that also profits from a little background knowledge. A site devoted to the geology of the area says "Golden Canyon preserves geologic stories steeped in change. Like pages in a book, its rocks tell tales of ancient times when a lake once covered this land; they also speak of violent flash floods racing down the canyon. Golden Canyon is a fascinating showcase of the effects of water in an arid land."
