The Bad Lands of Death Valley
Spending time in Death Valley National Park was an overwhelmingly creative experience. I think it is for many artists because it is one of the most beautiful and strangely diverse landscapes in America. This is the third of several posts about life in Death Valley.
Badlands are heavily eroded places with little vegetation. In Death Valley, the Badlands are laced with colorful clay deposits that decorate beautifully sculpted hills. To the early traveler this area must have been a perplexing place; both beautiful and forbidding at the same time.
