Death Valley Photos from Mosaic Canyon and Badwater Basin
You can’t go to Death Valley without a hike in Mosaic Canyon. There is no way to properly explain the texture, layers, colors or number of spice colors such as cinnamon, cardamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves inherent in the rock formations; it’s a cycle of erosions in Death Valley — best viewed in person, second by photographs. Geology facts that long ago escaped your brain such as the 3 types of rocks: igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic suddenly make sense. What I didn’t recall was that sedimentary limestone morphs into marble when compressed for a long time under pressure, over hundreds of thousands of years or millions, take your pick.
A vacation in Death Valley can bring your life into perspective. Well, apart from feeling small, puny and insignificant, it can also reawaken your spirit and energy. We visited Mosaic Canyon and Badwater Basin to shoot amazing photos I hope you’ll enjoy as much as we sweated to obtain proof of our journey.
