Since I had nothing better to do on a Friday evening, I began looking at more pictures from last week's trip. Death Valley is truly an amazing place. The place has seen so much action in terms of geography it is almost unbelievable. From a gigantic glacial age lake and being a feeding ground for mastodons and giant sloths, this place turned into a desert in the blink of an eye in terms of geologic timescale. It's got scars from the last time Yellowstone erupted. It's got mountains formed because of faults. Alluvial fans, fault lines, flash floods, Precambrian rocks, canyons, mountains, hot springs, sailing stones, playas, sand dunes and endemic plant and animal life - it's just got it all! What a place!
