Death Valley, Part 4—Home by Way of Whitney

If you're new to this series, I suggest you go back to Part 1, Dawn at Dante's View, and check out the other two parts (here and here) as well. But here you are on the final day of our Death Valley trip. I had a horrendous case of food poisoning that caused me to lay on my belly in a deserted parking lot most of the night. This condition somewhat soured my remaining experience of the trip, but I could not restrain myself from photographing some of the views along the way. We made a detour, as well, to the foot hills of the great Mt. Whitney, Eastern door keeper of the Sierras. I wish you could see these images in their original size! See the rest after the link...


Death Valley, Part 3—The Dunes

If you missed part 1, Dawn at Dante's view, or 2, Devil's Golf Course and Salt Flats, you might want to check those out first. But here you are at the world famous Death Valley dunes. Actually, Jake and I only visited the 100' dunes. Much further North East were 600' dunes, the tallest in North America. We tried rather unsuccessfully to slide down the dunes on a piece of cardboard. To make things worse, I had food poisoning at this point and trudging up and down the dunes was torture. At least it was beautiful. See the rest of the photos after the link...




Death Valley, Part 2—Devil's Golf Course & Salt Flats

If you missed Part 1, go check out an amazing dawn at Dante's Peak. Here are some images from our first day in Death Valley. For the record, breakfast on the Golf Course was a weird experience. More images after the jump...



Death Valley, Part 1—Dawn at Dante's View

Way back in January, I took an impromptu trip up to Death Valley with one of my good friends, Jake. Seven hours later we arrived at Dante's View. We were greeted just in time for a phenomenal moonset and sunrise. Man was it chilly up there. Hit the link to see the rest...
