|Evening clouds over Devil's Golf Course.|
The Devil's Golf Course in Death Valley National Park is one of my favorite photography destinations in the park. The area is just so interesting and different than anything I have previously experienced. It's as if you've stepped onto another planet.
This magnificent place is accessed from the Badwater Road, 13 miles south from Furnace Creek. The area closest to the parking lot is not very attractive, having been trampled by many feet. But wander out a short ways and this will all change. The rounded salt crystal mounds will turn to sharp, serrated formations that are much more interesting.
Be warned: the salt crystals are very sharp and abrasive. Sturdy boots, gloves and knee pads are highly recommended.
