The Devil's Disco -- Badwater Basin, Death Valley National Park
January 14, 2011
"What struck me most about this spot was how close it looked to the road. And then I walked for 15 minutes and realized it was a lot further than I had estimated. That's Death Valley in a nutshell. Spot anything on the map and then plan for it to take lots longer to actually get there than you expected."
Taken in January of 2011 on one of the road trips I was excited to take with Jeffrey and Sam, this location was not only a long walk, but the terrain was really uneven...I remember turning around after about 10 minutes, afraid of twisting an ankle. If there was the possibility of getting a good shot, Jeffrey was always willing to "f/it and be there!" I remember turning on the car's parking lights so he could find his way back in the dark.
