Exploring Death Valley

These photos don’t do the mountains justice. The colors and patterns are incredible and I have more to learn about my camera and software to show the real color.

This is Dan trying out an old car at Scotty’s Castle in the north end of the valley.

I was on the lookout for flowers. They were blooming at low elevation.

Desert five-spot.

Golden evening-primrose.

Desert gold.

We walked up Golden Canyon at the end of the day.

This is at the base of the cliffs looking back out into the valley as it was getting dark.

We drove home the same way we came, up the east side of the Sierra. This time the sky way clear and we could see Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the lower-48.

We drove up the road to the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest which is still closed for the winter. However, we got a spectacular view of the whole southern Sierras.

Good trip!
