"Death Valley: The Racetrack"



I was up at The Racetrack Valley yesterday. I was there on a road recon with one of Law enforcement's backcountry people, so I did not have much time for photography, but I did get this shot of The Grandstand surrounded by snow and ice.

We saw Seagulls and a group of seven Mallards out in one of the wetter areas. I would guess the gulls are fine today but we were concerned about the ducks. It was very cold even at noon.

I've never seen it like that. Nice shot. Apparently it is those conditions (plus some high winds) that make the mysterious rocks sail across the playa.

Very nice. I'd love to be out there during the winter.

Thank you! The Racetrack in winter is often really interesting (though generally really cold and windy!). I've gotten a number of my favourite Death Valley photographs up there. We had planned to check the road over Hunter Mountain that day, but were stopped by snow at less than 5500 feet. So much for Death Valley's reputation for being too sunny and hot to visit...

Painting Death Valley with the broad brush that it is the hottest place in North America is really giving this marvelous place short shrift. Sure it's hot in the late spring and summer, but the rest of the year it is quite pleasant to downright cold. Actually, the weather is not too different from where I grew up in Laredo, Texas, a semi-arid plain of scrub, cacti, and stunted mesquite where summer temps often exceed 110° regularly in July and August. And while we only get an occasional freeze in the winter it does get chilly with the kind of cold mixed with fog and mist that just gets to your bones.

Very nice shot. I'm sure the ducks were fine. I see some stragglers up here in Minnesota when it is much colder than Death Valley ever gets.
