Badwater Basin


Badwater Basin at Death Valley National Park is famous for the fact it is one of the hottest (It was 85 degrees F this day) and lowest places on earth.  The salt flats are a result of any standing water in the basin evaporating and leaving the salt deposits behind.  I caught these images last week after a sand storm blew through the valley but parted right around sunset.

  6. This is quite a place, one that I may never get to see up close. The patterns must be a study in and of themselves. Thanks for sharing!
