Two reasons why I love Death Valley

Post by Death Valley Dazed » Fri Apr 13, 2018 11:52 am

Both reasons come from atop the highest ridgeline above The Artist Palette on an early Thursday, April 12th morning looking west towards the Panamints with the shadowy jaws of the Black Mountains clenching down on the valley floor.

Do you have any closer up shots of the upper Panamints around Telescope? I'd like to have a better idea of how much snow I will be encountering next week.

I am a huge fan, as DV has such a varied environment. It has such incredible history, and the geography, it is next to none. It has some of the most unusual features on the planet. We are so lucky that for most of us it is in our backyard. I consider anything within 600 miles from Silicon Valley, in my backyard :D

Nice pix. And you were up early :) Some of my favorite pix are the mountain shadows creeping across the desert floor,but I'm usually getting the mountains on the west side towards sunset. The best pix are early or late!

Yes, those are great pictures. Those views across the wide valleys to the mountains are some of the most spectacular shots of DV, in my opinion.

Somehow I missed this one before I went. Looks great!
