Death Valley National Park

We recently returned from a trip that covered parts of Nevada, Utah and California. Today’s Blog contains images from Death Valley National Park in California. This was our first trip to this park and it was not what I was expecting. However, after getting there at dawn and leaving in the late afternoon we did not get to see much of the park; it is the largest National Park in the lower 48. We arrived at Zabriskie Point at sunrise and what a sight it was! An orange sky over the multi-colored hills. Photographers were out in force. The only sand dunes we saw in the short time we were there was the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes. They were impressive but not as much as the Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado. There is a 9-mile, one-way drive known as Artists Palette Drive. If you are in the area, this drive is certainly worth your time. Colorful hillsides abound on this drive along with short hikes if you chose. If we return to Death Valley National Park, we will find a hotel closer that Las Vegas to spend a couple nights as there is so much to see and getting up at 4 am to go to the park was not what I really wanted to do while on vacation (but it was worth it). Enjoy the images and check back for additional images in my Blog as I have time to work on the photos.
