Let me tell you now. Death Valley National Park is easily an Absolute Must Visit for me.
The Sophomore Slump Recommends
Movie: Finding Nemo – Still remains to be my most favorite animated movie of all time.
Music: Yankee Foxtrot Hotel by Wilco – This is one of my top three albums of 2000’s.
And since I’m now here in Greece, this video I found uses one of the album’s songs as a soundtrack to a short created by an Athens-based director. Here is “What is that?”. The song, Pot Kettle Black, is one of my ultimate best album tracks of all time. I never get tired of this song.
You GOTTA watch this one….
Death Valley National Park is absolutely spectacular! There are many attractions where you can just drive by or walk and hike, and explore!
Driving around the desert is so cool too. You can see miles and miles and miles and miles of nothing. See this next picture … you can see this endless road to the dot…
Death Valley is a nature art museum. Mother Nature did an incredibly great job being an artist in this part of the Earth.
Many of you know how big of a fan I am when it comes to awesome rock formations. So Death Valley NP really delighted me right off the bat.
Mind you, I was only here for one full day and I saw so much of its breathtaking and, not to mention, interesting landscapes.
I got to walk on the lowest point of North America.
I hiked some of the trails. And even though I came here during winter to avoid extreme heat of the desert, weather here is still a kicker esp. when you hike. I have learnt to bring enough water and gear up for this occasion. 😀 😉
I recommend ending the day in Mesquite Sand Dunes to catch its dramatic color.
I took more pictures with my DSLR but the charger and a cord I need to upload got to my shipped boxes so I have to wait long for the shipment to arrive here in Greece. But for now, I think these cellphone pics will suffice. Til then, see you for more of one of the best California travel destinations I’ve been to.
i started pointing the cellphone camera direction to the sky. And when I turned around, next thing I saw, everyone was doing it too 😀 …
