Road Through Death Valley

Above are some selections from my quick road trip through Death Valley two weeks ago.  The most striking aspect to visiting the park were the roadways, which seem to span for eternity.  After I began photographing, it seemed even the shape of the landscape began to mimic the roads.   There was also an eerie silence that engulfed Death Valley – never in my life have I been outside (even in a national park) and not heard birds chirping, cars driving by, water running, kids playing, etc.  Pretty incredible place and highly worth the detour.
