Vegas…beyond the Strip (Part 2)

In case you missed the previous post, you can click on this hyperlink:  Part 1

Death Valley…sounds scary doesn’t it?  Let me assure you that this place is absolutely AMAZING!!

Many times I felt as though I was on the sets of “Star Wars”.  The openness, the terrain, the unusual colors!

Here are the highlights:

Me and my kids running up and down the sand dunes…great workout!  
 The terrain at Zabriski point
 A large stretch of Sand Dunes  Sunset at the Ubehebe Crater

A view from the top of the Golden Canyon with the Salt Flats in the distance

A Natural Bridge  
Below Sea level!! 
 Artist’s Palette – gold, green, brown… 
A closer look at the green deposits   

 The white stuff is not snow…it is SALT!! 
 Texture on the Golden Canyon   
Dried up!

 Well, that’s it in a nutshell.  We would have liked to have spent one more day there since we couldn’t get to all the spots.

So the next time you are in Vegas, this is a stop (a two hour drive) that you could consider. 😀

What can I say…I love nature!
