This drive, near Furnace Creek in Death Valley, is billed as, "Scenic loop drive through multi-hued volcanic and sedimentary hills." It is that and more! The drive is a nine mile one-way loop with just enough pull-outs to make the trip last several hours, if you are a photographer. I would recommend this drive over Badwater Basin, which is further down the road.
Tom and I use the expression, "You just can't make this stuff up!" Usually it is in reference to some article we read that has caused us to ponder at the folly of our fellow human beings. But, I have begun to think of this expression when confronted with a photo-adventure that defies an easy explanation, that is awesome in every way, that cannot be created in any software program that I know of, and that I could not have imagined before seeing it. Zabriskie Point and Artists' Palette are such places.
