Golden Canyon Interpretive Trail - Death Valley National Park (Part 21)

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 the last 9 photos from Golden Canyon Interpretive Trail. I hope you enjoy these photos. The photos for today will include some wildlife photos, HDR landscapes as well as some regular landscapes.

A lizard I spotted in Golden Canyon. I immediately switched on my telephoto lens and started shooting away.
Update 3-12-2013: According to a commenter this is a Side-Blotched Lizard (Uta stansburiana)

I did some Google search on the species but I can't seem to find it. If you know, please help me out in the comments below.

Another photo of the lizard.

Would make a great emergency shelter for short people. HAHA There was this crevice right in the rocks.
