Death Valley – Zabriskie Point

I saw this observation point on Sunday but it was in the afternoon and there was steep incline I had to walk up to get to it.  Knowing that I’d be coming back in this way Monday morning I waited to go up then – plus I knew I’d then have the sun at my back.

This is mainly a view of hardened dunes and other formations which are close to the observation area, but in some shots you can see the mountains to the west on the other side of the desert floor.

The mountains at the top of the next two pictures are across the valley to the west:

This is looking back down towards the parking lot:

And this is on the road driving towards the Visitor Center:
