Death Valley National Park (Part 40)

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. To see my best work from Death Valley National Park, use this link. To see all of the photos from my Death Valley National Park trip use this link.

Mosaic Canyon was the last view point I saw before driving out of Death Valley National Park back to the SF Bay Area. Today, I have some photos from my drive home including scenery photos and some close up shots of some plants. I will be finishing the photos of my drive home by next time. :) I hope you have enjoyed this chain of posts. Hope you enjoy these photos for today.

The straight road in/out of the park. Also, see that yellowish-white strip in the middle of the image? It is some sort of dry lake bed. I will have a few photos of that at the bottom of this post. I'll tell you when it starts.

Some tiny trees in the desert.

Remember the dry lake bed I told you about in the first image? Here it is! I stopped and took some shots of the area. 

I sat down on the ground to shoot this panorama, but my shadow still showed up. :/

Some more scenery shots of the dry lake bed. 

Last shot of the dry lake bed. 

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed them. Next time, I will post the rest of the photos from my drive home. Next time will be the last blog post on Death Valley National Park.
