When we decided we were going to take a trip from Las Vegas to Death Valley I expected to spend the day in a desert. Well, that was true, it’s the lowest, driest and hottest spot in Northern America (they even measured the highest July temperature ever), but I never thought a desert could be this varied. We watched how the early morning sun colored the sandy rocks at Zabriskie Point from shiny gold to warm caramel. You can just sit and enjoy the show or hike around for a bit, but be sure not to miss this point.
Another high: the Devil’s Cornfield, a field filled with arrow weed crops that somehow survive the drought and erosion of the desert. No one really knows where they got there name from, but someone decided they look like corn. Hmm, we think they look more like giant pineapples, what do you think?
