Salt Creek - Death Valley National Park (Part 37)

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.

After my stay at The Atomic Inn (read about my great stay in my previous post) in Beatty, NV, I went ahead and drove back into Death Valley National Park to go see Salt Creek. The photos for today are photos from Salt Creek and some random shots on the side of the road on my way back into the park. I tried to find some Death Valley Pupfish, but I didn't spot any sadly. :( So no Death Valley Pupfish photos...

Some on the side of the road scenery. The road through Death Valley National Park is pretty straight. 

Another shot on the side of the road.

Salt Creek itself. 

A bird at Salt Creek. Not sure what species it is as I suspect it is a female. Female birds tend to look similar.

Scenery with a random Asian kid on the right. Was waiting for her to get out of the way, but she stood there. Grrr... Anyways, here is a shot. 

More scenery of Salt Creek. 

These are all the photos for today! I hope you have enjoyed viewing them. Next time I will have some photos up from Devils Corn Field and some other random scenery on the side of the road in Death Valley National Park. Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
