I'm back for part two of Desert Photo Bombardment 2011. We did a lot on Sunday, and this post doesn't even finish it.
Don't ask me why there is no apostrophe in Devils...I guess it's just plural? Who comes up with these names, anyway? This is basically an area of salty mud that ends up looking like the surface of some other planet.
My dad walking on the mud lumps.
Here's a closer look. My parents and I tasted the salt. Guess what--it tasted salty!
Next stop: the lowest point in the western hemisphere. More salt! It looked like snow and felt kind of squishy as we walked on it.
They cleverly hung a sign up on the nearby cliff to show where sea level was compared to where we stood. And to your right: my parents on the salt.
From a distance this looks just like water. Not in this photo, though.
More of the salt crystals.
I was pleasantly surprised by this next point of interest. There's a one-way street called Artist's Drive that takes you through some cool rocks, and then to one particular multi-colored scene called Artist's Palette. It was neat!
Some of the different colors.
I'm not sure we ever figured out what the green was.
Are you bored?
I couldn't decide what to show you, so I probably have too many photos here.
Kind of a dark burgundy on our way out.
More to come! :)
