I _really_ liked my site at Fossil Falls, so I decided to stay another night and go check out the flower situation in Death Valley from here. 100 degree plus temps were predicted in Death Valley so I started early to make my trek. It was a pretty brown and boring trek to the first overlook in the park. I could count the number of flowers I saw on one hand. If you have followed me at all, you know I am WAY into flowers. I made the decision to turn around & go check out the lake and snow capped mountains I had seen back at my turn off from Hwy 395 instead of doing more in Death Valley and I was glad I did!
|Loved how the dry mtns on the east and snow capped Sierra's came together here.|
I found my way back to pavement and back to my Fossil Falls campsite. The day ended with a great sunset and an eagle soaring through the full moon rise. Does life get any better!?
