After 4 hour's of driving through Death Valley, we found Panamint Mountain's looked pretty much like the rest of the mountain's in the Death Valley area. Again, glad we can tick the box so to speak, been there, done that.

Another geologic wonder of Death Valley. It's fun to follow the bands winding their way around the mountains.

Have lived in California over 30 years and never got out to Death Valley. Expected just desert. The highlight of my trip were the mountains. The view of Telescope peak dusted in snow from Panamint Springs was a real surprise. Enjoyed driving over Towne pass.

This is the main view from Furnace Creek. It amazed me - standing in the desert and looking at snow capped mountains! Photos come out great too.

Though we spent much of our time in the Death Valley, we stayed @ the Panamint motel. For what was visable from there the hues of blues/ grays, reds and sand changed with the passing clouds and dusk and dawn. Hope to explore more there...More
