03/28/2015 Trip Notes: On this day I again visited Dante’s View on a trip to Death Valley with my friend Marc Resnic (Fig. 03). On the way up the mountain, the sides of the road were covered with thousands of desert dandelions (Fig. 01). Once you reach the parking lot at the top of Dante's View there are two trails you can take to view the valley floor below. One leads downward from the parking area along a ridge-line to a couple of small rocky peaks (Fig. 02), the other leads up to an even higher viewpoint, seen to the left of the parking area in the top center of (Fig. 05). For today’s visit we decided to head downward (Fig. 04). The view in (Fig. 05) is looking back up towards the parking area from a point near the bottom of the lower ridge trail. (Figs. 06 & 07) are two views taken along this trail looking north up Death Valley towards Furnace Creek. Even though the prime time for seeing wild flowers had gone by, I was still lucky enough to get a few shots along this trail that provided some great color (Figs. 08 thru 13).
