Joan, sure glad I caught that sunrise as it was the only colorful one while there. See, I can get up early when motivated. I could barely keep my hands off that marble.

I love the first sunrise image - and the emotional and mental journeys your blog always takes me on. I can only imagine the wonder of the journey is all the more intense and wonderful from your van!

Stunning, just stunning that first picture, and I did so enjoy the hike, makes my hip hurt just to see you there.

I thought you would always be an early riser - the day is half over and the fishing has slowed by the time the sun comes up!!!! Great pictures especially the sunrise. I love them.

Looks like you may have found a new park to work for over the winter months. Did you go to the hot springs too?

The others said it all for me. Death Valley is on my list of places to visit again.
