This was taken during the first part of my adventure to Death Valley and then on to Las Vegas. As I mentioned in my last post it was quite a diverse meandering. Here, I arose early from my camp spot and went up to Zabriskie Point to catch the sunrise. Beautiful as you might expect. Also, the areal was filled with at least 30 other gazers, mostly being photographers. As the sun started to rise I wandered down the trail and into golden canyon. Quiet surrounded me. The light was shining on the alluvial hills and I could see the bottom of the canyon. And since it was the middle of winter, the temperature was perfect. A little slice of heaven.
