"Christmas at the Sourdough Saloon"
December 2010, Beatty, Nevada
Whenever I go to Death Valley I stay in nearby Beatty which lies just across the Nevada border. Beatty is a sleepy little town which probably owes its very existence to its location on Nevada state highway 95. It's about a 45 minute drive from Beatty to the Death Valley visitor center .
Every Christmas the folks at the Sourdough Saloon break out the holiday decorations and have at it. My motel is only a block away from the saloon, so shooting it late one night was a no-brainer. Kudos to the owners of this establishment for an outstanding decorating job.
