Death Valley, Mosaic Canyon

A short drive up a gravel road out of Stovepipe ends at the mouth of Mosaic Canyon.  The trail leads up to a narrow cut in the canyon that is lined with marble.  It is amazing to see the wave pattern of water recorded in beautiful marble.

This close up is for all the geologists out there.  Death Valley is truly a geologists dream.
The canyon opens up to a hanging valley after about 1/2 a mile.
