Photographer's Note

Hello all, Death Valley is a geologic wonder. At first glance, the valley looks desolate and barren but in actuality it holds life and color and an amazing display of rock and sand.
Zabriskies' Point is one of the more recognizable areas of the valley. Photographers seem to love this spot tremendously because of the colors in the rock and the formations with lines and points.
"Zabriskie Point is a part of Amargosa Range located east of Death Valley in Death Valley National Park in California, United States noted for its erosional landscape. It is composed of sediments from Furnace Creek Lake, which dried up 5 million years ago様ong before Death Valley came into existence."
It was named for the general manager and vice president of the Pacific Coast Borax Company.
