I'm about a week behind in my posting. Hard to find fast WiFi out in the wide open spaces of the West. These images are from our first taste of Death Valley driving from Lone Pine CA to Beatty NV. This red volcanic canyon runs into the west side of Saline Valley, one of the two valleys in Death Valley. The colors were spectacular. It seemed as if the volcanic rock had been squirted out of a tube of cadmium red deep.
