CELEBRATING EXISTENCE| SHARING MY STORIES SINCE 2012 | INFINITELY GRATEFUL

USA 2016: Artist Drive and Dante's View, Death Valley National Park, California

Driving along the slopes of the artist drive kinda felt like a mild roller coaster ride. 
After the Badwater Basin, we drove back passing through the Artist Drive where the Artist Palette can be found. 
Why Artist Palette?

As you can see, the badlands in here are multicolored compared to the rest of the badlands that can usually see in the valley. This is the closer look of the rocks at my back when we went up the hill here. 
We drove back to Hell's Gate but I don't have a picture of that place and straight to Dante's View for an overlook once again, this time of the Badwater Basin, Black Mountains and the Coffin Canyon. 
It was said that on a clear day, you can actually see Mt. Whitney which is the highest peak in the contiguous United States. Hey! How cool is that?! To actually see the lowest and highest point at once.


Mt. Whitney are in Yosemite National Park and Sequioa National Park, both of which we weren't able to go to so soon. :)) Very very soon. hahaha! 
The temperature in this area is at least 20 degrees Fahrenheit lower than temperature of Badwater Basin.

It actually started drizzling that we had to go back to the car immediately and look for another place to go to. 
Had to walk for a short distance to get to this part.

It was breezy and cool so it was easy. 
Sunburn.

Akala mo lang wala.

Pero meron, meron, meron. 
Trivia: The highest temperature recorded here in Death Valley was taken in July 10, 1913 at 134 Fahrenheit or 56.7 Celscius!
