The popular Dantes View overlook at Death Valley National Park is open again after a four-month facelift.
The site in California, 125 miles west of Las Vegas, now features a broad viewing area, benches, a safety barrier with a railing and a retaining wall to stabilize the eroding hilltop. A bronze tactile map of the surrounding landscape by artist Bridget Keimel has also been added.
The improvements were funded with park entrance fees and private donations.
Dantes View sits more than a mile above Badwater Basin, providing one of the most expansive vistas of Death Valley.
The overlook draws more than half a million visitors a year, but some visitors were excluded because the narrow sidewalk was crumbling in places and there was no barrier to keep people from falling off the steep mountain ridge, the National Park Service said.
The opening was announced in May.
