Death Valley – Day 3 – Additional

Here are some photos from my final day in Death Valley National Park.  I stopped at the Visitor Center one last time (where I sent a post in real time showing the early morning temperature of 98 degrees at 847am).  Here are some shots from throughout the morning as I approached the Park, and as I drove west across the desert floor and exited the Park.

This was the temperature at 930am local time.

This area is called Devil’s Cornfield, and is pretty much in the center of the northern end of Death Valley proper.  Not corn, obviously, but I find it amazing that plant life has adapted and can survive in these harsh conditions.

These are the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes:
