Furnace Creek Visitor Center & Museum - Death Valley National Park (Part 18)

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 photos from the Furnace Creek Visitor Center and Museum. The photos for today are pretty much artifacts on display in the museum. These will include taxidermy animals, historical Indian artifacts, historical mining tools, and historical borax products. For most of these photos (pretty much all of them except the first one), I used my Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT to add some light. You may see some hot spots on some of the photos from when I didn't aim the flash correctly.

Taxidermy Animals

I think these are historical Indian baskets.

Remember Harmony Borax Works from the last post? The borax mined were made into these products.

These are all the photos for today! I hope you have enjoyed them. Next time I got photos of a coyote wondering on the road in Death Valley National Park. Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
