THE COOLEST HOT PLACE IN NORTH AMERICA...
|This not what we expected|
Death Valley to look like.
|A coyote gave us a visit one day.|
|Looking into Ubehebe Crater.|
|"Salt Creek" is teeming with "pupfish" who can survive in this|
super salty environment. All the water in Death Valley is loaded with
salt to toxic levels.
|Scenes from the "Artist Palette" drive.|
|Standing in "Badwater" at 282' below sea-level and gazing across|
the salt flat to Telescope Peak at 11,049' above sea-level.
|Patterns created by the salt and dust|
in the salt flat at "Badwater."
|The view from Zabriskie Point. |
Looking into some of the upper
canyons of the "Golden Canyon" area.
|Nancy surveying Death Valley from "Dante's View." |
Although it was in the upper 80's on the valley floor, at "Dante's View"
at 5,475' it was in the low 50's.
|The Desert Marigold.|
This flower seems to be the most common in the park.
|Notice the little bug trying to stick its head out from|
under the stamens in the Desert Five-Spot.
|The "Super-Bloom" fills the valley floor.|
|Views from the valley floor.|
|This is the wagon train hauled by the "Twenty-Mule-Team."|
The 1st 2 wagons contain "Borax" and the last tank
contains drinking water.
