Devil's Golf Course
Death Valley, Day 4
To celebrate our 3 year anniversary, my wife and I drove around Death Valley - the actual valley, not just the national park in general. We took Badwater Road all the way down to the Ashford Mill ruins, and then came back up the other side of the valley on West Side Road. Our first stop of the day was the Devil's Golf Course, which was a huge surprise - it was awesome. We weren't sure what to expect, but basically it's these crazy salt formations that grow and change with the heat and moisture. It's adjacent, but completely different than the Badwater salt flats. It's hard to walk on - you have to carefully plan every step - and it goes on as far as you can see.
I was lucky with this photo - right as I was setting up, the sun peeked over the Amargosa mountains and gave me some lovely lighting. Being in that crazy landscape and seeing the shadow of the mountain move over us was a pretty great experience.
