Valley Shots

pax vobiscum

Welcome to my photo gallery of our "secret" valley. Well, its not a valley, its a bolson, and its been so long since it has been a secret I can't remember. These are some really old photos, in many cases, and not all of them are mine, obviously.

For the record, all photos contained herein are presented with the permission of the subject or photographer.

Many people write me asking for road information. I am happy to give such information when I can, and can usually recommend sources for current informtion. One such source is the Death Valley National Park Tourist Information which contains updates on road conditions around the park, including our special valley. Another excellent source is Death Valley Talk
