About Death Valley Jim:Death Valley Jim - Mojave Desert Guide

Jim has been documenting the hidden treasures of Death Valley National Park, Joshua Tree National Park, Mojave National Preserve, along with the rest of the Mojave Desert for several years. He is known for his website, the book series “Secret Places in the Mojave Desert”, and his radio program “The Death Valley Jim Radio Program.”

He has worked alongside professional photographers, and high-profile musicians/artists, scouting their ideal shooting locations.

His specialties include: Archaeological, and historical site documentation and study, as well as natural wonders.

Jim is a minimalist, hiker/backpacker, photographer, and an avid supporter of Leave No Trace ethics.

His hope is that through this website people will become more educated about the desert and all that it has to offer, that they will look deeper and longingly at the natural beauty that is sometimes not visible to those that fail to slow down and appreciate what a magical place it is.
