The Culture of Rocks

Often we admire the waterfall, the river, beautiful trees, perhaps a meadow or wildflowers.  These features are the main attraction, while rocks, at best, fade into the background.  In Death Valley the rocks rule.  Death Valley’s rocks exude a commanding presence in every direction and every location.  The immensely sized mountains and canyon walls colored in vivid reds, blacks, greens, grays, and tans compel the visitor’s attention.  It is not a matter of a few impressive formations scattered around the park.  Death Valley is filled with flashy colored rocks sporting exotic and chiseled appearances that defy description.  See additional photos below.
