It looks like I will be heading up to Sequoia National Park to do some hiking and camping Tuesday through Thursday of this upcoming week. It is going to be cooooold (in the teens at night), but the photo opportunities around the 4 lakes I’ll be passing on the hike will make it all worth it!
Today I have another photo from Death Valley National Park to share. When you drive in the park, the distances can be extremely deceptive. The general rule of thumb is to estimate a distance visually and then multiply by four. That distance usually turns out to be more accurate. So, when driving to different destinations in the park, it takes up a nice amount of time – Some of the hikes are over 50 miles from each other! Fortunately, scenes like the one you see below are everywhere. I shot this while transiting from the Furnace Creek Visitor Center, past the glorious Sand Dunes, to the mysterious and hidden Surprise Canyon.
Most of my photos don’t make it up on to this blog. If you would like to see more of my work, you can always subscribe to my Facebook updates @ http://facebook.com/adam.allegro where I post multiple times a day!
