Highlights Of My Trip

Panamint Valley

The northern end of the Panamint Valley lies in Inyo County, California & stretches from the Panamint Dunes southwards to the Naval Weapons Station China Lake in San Bernardino County. The area is very barren & an ideal training area for military jets from the Nellis & Edwards AFB.

Mesquite Sand Dunes

The Sahara in miniature. Mesquite is to be found in the northern area of Death Valley & is almost totally surrounded by mountain ranges. The dunes are easily accessible from the road & due to this have been used for several movie scenes from the Star Wars series. One thing though, you have to get here early in the morning if you want pictures without footprints in them ;-)

Furnace Creek

This little village is a considerably important oasis in this vast area of wilderness. Furnace Creek boasts not only a holiday resort & gas station but also its very own golf course. Yes you have read correctly, a golf course in the middle of Death Valley. Due to this growth the scarce springs have diminished over the past years as have the marshes & wetlands in the area.

Stovepipe Wells

Stovepipe Wells

Stovepipe Wells is another important stopover point to tank up with Gas & probably more importantly with water & other provisions from the grocery store. Stovepipe has its own hotel, saloon, restaurant, gift shop, ranger station & airport.

DEATH VALLEY, A GEOLOGICAL MASTERPIECE

Visit my portfolio of images that I have collected during my 3 day stay in this hot & arid desert landscape.  

Travel Journal

I have been able to visit many interesting places due to my addiction to digital travel photography & decided to write a little about those that have captured my attention in the past 10 years.

Did You Know?

Most of the vegetation in Death Valley consists of low lying shrubs or no vegetation unless near a water source. At some of Death Valley’s higher locations, Joshua Trees & Bristlecone Pines can be found. In the spring after winter rains, Death Valley is known to have large plant & floral blooms in its wetter areas.
