Artist's Drive in Death Valley National Park

Artist’s Drive is a very scenic one-way drive with lots of colors and geological formations traveling from south to north within the Death Valley NP. The main stop is Artist's Palette, a formation showing some unique coloring due to the minerals deposited here. Various metals have oxidized the clay creating eye-popping reds, yellows, greens, blues, and purples.

The sea is emotion incarnate

“The sea is emotion incarnate. It loves, hates, and weeps. It defies all attempts to capture it with words and rejects all shackles. No matter what you say about it, there is always that which you can't.”
― Christopher Paolini, Eragon
