Desert Gold - a member of the sunflower family (Garaea canescens) and by far the showiest player in the show.
Five-spot - (Nemophila maculate) and it too was putting on another strong showing.
Dante's View at an elevation of 5,476 ft. above sea level. Badwater on the floor of Death Valley (seen here at the bottom of the photograph) is at an elevation of -282 ft. Therefore, it is well over one mile to the floor of the valley below. And Telescope Peak across the view in the Panamint Mts. is at 11,331 ft. above sea level, making it almost twice as high as Dante's View. That means the alluvial fan coming out of the mountain front across the way descends for a mile to the valley floor. Two Grand Canyon's stacked on on top of the other would fit easily in the Panamint Mt. front in this view. Death Valley is a geologists paradise!

The Mesquite Dunes near Stovepipe Wells. We did a short hike here to see some eolian features.
Eureka Mine in the Panamint Mountains. This was a gold prospect in which over $175,000 of ore was taken out in the first half of the 20th century.
