Enchantingly beautiful and yet such unappealing name
A name like that certainly excites the imagination of the visitor!
Very nice photo!
Thanks Terry, I had to be quick taking it, the heat was evaporating my eyes!
I have not been yet but this is on the list.
Perhaps a fall, winter or early spring visit out of the intense heat? I’d love to go back one day 🙂
Yep, I have always read that Death Valley in the summer, well, could be just that if you neglected to bring enough water. 😉
I wouldn’t have wanted to try to cross that area in a wagon train 150 years ago.
No me neither, or mine the bauxite from the rocks. We reckoned we’d have lasted for about 8 hours in that heat if we were left to our own devices, let alone eek out an existence 🙂
And there lies my heart. Next time go in early spring or late fall. If they get some relatively decent rain over the winter, you’d be amazed at the wild flowers that bloom in the spring.
I would dearly love to Pat, maybe one day 🙂
Another place I must go! Lovely and desolate.
