I believe you are talking about a pika, also known as a rock rabbit. They are listed in Discovering Sierra Mammals. Don't think you should be seeing them in Death Valley. The other animals you listed sound pretty normal to desert environment. Not sure why you saw a hog, though, unless it was the two wheel kind, or escaped from the ranch.
Here's a site with info on pikas http://ice.ucdavis.edu/pika/pikapage.html
