DEATH VALLEY in Black & White

Death Valley, the name says "STAY AWAY", but being human, we can't.
Very dry, very hot, very cold, desolate, extremely rough terrain, the lowest place in the northern hemisphere and VERY beautiful. A photographer could spend an entire career in this place.

Here's a few of my photographs taken in the Death Valley National Park area which is HUGE. At over 5,200 square miles it's more than 4 times larger than the state of Rhode Island... plenty to see and explore.

If you visit the park from the south end fill your tank in Pahrump and pack food & water for the day as services are sparse at best. If you like to hike, get there early for MUCH cooler conditions. 40-50 degree swings are common. If you go off established trails you'll need thick soled boots.

Roads in the park are long and for the most part straight. There is no vegetation to speak of, no shade and the white salty minerals reflect the sun. Even in a car you can sense the danger of being stranded here. I didn't see any critters except for one Lady Bug on my last visit, but it was, as is often the case, windy.

If you time it right you might see this awesome view of Red Rock Canyon from Blue Diamond Highway.
