Two Images From Death Valley
On my way to Alabama Hills and Owens Valley, I passed quickly through Death Valley and produced only these 2 images.
Death Valley’s Zabriskie Point
One of the most popular places to visit in Death Valley National Park is Zabriskie Point. Probably because of the colorful and twisted sandstone rock formations.
Death Valley NP’s Racetrack Playa
Racetrack Playa at California’s Death Valley National Park is hard to get to but worth the effort. It is home to the famous sailing or sliding rocks.

Annual Trip To Eureka Dunes
I made my annual trip to Eureka Dunes at Death Valley National Park and was still blown away despite the cold temperatures. Along with my friend Lian, her first visit, we climbed to the very top of the dunes, some 700 feet on the first day and explored the smaller dunes the next morning. These…
