“Interesting signpost”

Tea Kettle Junction
Reviewed 11 April 2017

This is just a signpost directing you to 2 different locations in Death Valley. An off road 4x4 vehicle with high clearance and great trail tires is recommended for this 30 mile one-way backcountry trail. Don't drive your regular car down this trail.

Whether you are on your way to the Race Track or to Hunter Mountain, you should stop here. Read the comments from others that have left their teakettles at the crossroads. Leave your own teakettle and a short note. And take in the beauty that surrounds you.

OK Folks,
This is "the" place to stop on the way to The Racetrack and points beyond. I have seen hundreds of Teakettles there (saw a whole Mr. COFFEE too one time; I applauded the sentiment, if not the fidelity). Other times, it looks like most were stolen for a flea market or something. I always have a small supply of pots on-hand here in Michigan, just in case the Desert calls again. All told, the view of the High Sierras is the most wonderful of this place - stunning.
My next "go-to" place is Crankshaft Crossing at the park; I have a venerable old crank from an old Austin Healey racecar. Busted in two, but hopefully suitable for the task.

But plenty of tea pots. On the way to the DV Race Track you will pass this spot and it is a definite photo spot. However, getting there in a rugged dirt road and you will need to find the speed for your vehicle where you float over the washboard as opposed to bouncing over them. Note that the park warns that if you travel the unpaved roads you are likely to get a flat tire. I did not, at least here. (Twice in other parks, though)

On the way to The Racetrack you come to Tea Kettle Junction. This is just as it says -- lots of kettles hung from the wooden markers. It was cute, but not worth the drive unless you continue on to the Racetrack
