Artist Drive, Death Valley

Artist Drive was truly full of artist pastels enhanced by the evening light.  These colors come from the minerals in the in the volcanic remains.

As I descended I stopped at a place that looked like rubble but it was full of cinder from a volcanic explosion.  I touched one of the large ones which was hot to the touch. I imagined it was still cooling down after millions of years. Of course it was just still hot from the day’s sun.

Everywhere is so quiet and peaceful. The views are so expansive I feels like someone had implanted a wide angle lens in my eye balls.

One of the big cinders reminded me of a Henry Moore sculpture.
