On the way to Death Valley, Christina and I encountered long stretches of open road.
While Christina drove, I took pictures of the flat desert landscape surrounded by mountains.
With views I have so come to love since I first saw a desert sunrise back in 2006.
We were high up here, going down toward the road to Death Valley.
Which lies behind those mountains in the distance.
Christina was great, she drove most of the way there and all the way home. And, once she figured out I wasn't attached to driving, she, my guest from Sweden, actually drove the entire time.
While living in the high desert, in addition to clouds, sunrises, and sunsets, I have become very fond of rocks. I thought the ones straight ahead here, were just beautiful.
