The Valley of Death ☀


  1. Why do I suddenly have the urge to drink lots of water.
    Cool photos of the beautiful salt crystals.

  2. Wow, thanks for posting these amazing images Dawn. An unbelievable place.

  3. What is the temperature there now? Don are I are planning on leaving here on Thursday and spend some time in those parts I've been watching the weather. Seems to be 60 in Vegas and sunny.

  4. What an other worldly place. I guess I have a new place to visit.

  5. That place is so cool. Andrew must be having a blast.. I need to catch up on your other blogs..

  6. Awesome.... I will have to go there with my wife, thanks for sharing!

  7. These photos are fantastic. It reminds me of a drive my husband and I took from Vegas through Death Vally on route to Yosemite. The temperature was 106 degrees so we didn't stop. Your photos make me want to visit int the wintertime.

  8. FASCINATING! I want to show this to the grandsons.

  9. It is just a weird and amazing place to visit.The earth is just cracked by severe and intense cold and snow.


ok what do you really think?????
