Mosaic Canyon - Death Valley National Park (Part 39)

At the end of November last year (2012), I took a trip to Death Valley National Park. This is the second trip there in my life. The 1st time I went, I was still a little kid, and I didn't start taking photos yet. This time, I have a pro camera and I am ready to shoot the scenery. Death Valley National Park is known for its "out of this world" scenery, UFO sightings, and many other things. The desert is a very mysterious and beautiful place. In this chain of blog posts, I will be showing you mainly photos of Death Valley National Park, but also photos from surrounding areas like The Mojave Desert, Alabama Hills, and Rhyolite Ghost Town. I have picked out over 400 photos from my trip to show you guys and I will be dividing them into many blog posts. Unlike blog  post chains before, I obviously can't put a link of ever blog post on every single blog post, so instead, I will do the same thing I did for my Yellowstone National Park photos before, by sticking a link of the Next and Previous post on each blog post instead.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing.

Today I have 15 photos from Mosaic Canyon. The canyon was very beautiful and definitely a place to visit. I know some of these photos look kind of bad. This is because on the last day of my trip, I actually got sick and had a really bad headache so I just didn't take that much photos, and when I did, I didn't really think about the shot too much. :/ Anyways, I hope you enjoy.

Scenery 

 This photo was actually a "gigapixel" panorama. I shot a lot of photos to combine this. Obviously no image hosting service will take a photo so large so I had to shrink it down.

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed them. Mosaic Canyon was the last view point I saw before heading back home. Next time, I will have some photos from my trip out of Death Valley National Park and back to the SF Bay Area. Please don't forget to share with your friends and family members! Also, if you want to get notifications when I post up more photos, "Like" us on Facebook or follow me on Twitter and Google+. These links can also be found on the top of the right sidebar.
