Red Rock Canyon and Death Valley National Park:
Just outside of Las Vegas is Red Rock Canyon where one can find great climbing mountain biking, hiking and even Joshua Trees.
With mid-day sun approaching, I never expected to spot a desert coyote, but there he was.
No visit to Death Valley National Park would be complete without a stop at Badwater Basin, the lowest place in the United States.
Just outside of Twenty Mule Canyon, the desert lines paint the floor.
Early morning sunrise at Zabriskie Point, the same spot where U2 photographed their Joshua Tree cover.
Another view of Zabriskie Point.
The Mesquite Flats Sand Dunes bake under the mid-day sun.
