Death Valley ... a place to stop, look and listen
Death Valley Nat'l Park: a place to stop, look and listen.
Especially nice on a Harley at 70 mph.
Or on foot ... as the sun is falling
Now to find a quiet place to read.
Some place more elevated, say 4500 feet, but not at Telescope's rocking 11,331 feet. Snow in Death Valley in late March? Absolutely. 91 degrees on the floor; 40 degrees at 5 am where I'm camping.
The flora seem not to mind. Barrel cacti and saltbrush alike.
Heading home for the night.
I love shadows and windscreens.
See you on the road one day.
