Ripples in Sand - Death Valley Dunes
Full Image

What do you do to one of the most desolate places in North America?  Where summer temperatures can be over 120 degrees during the day and not go below 100 at night.  You make it a National Park as Congress did in 1994.  Death Valley is in the rain shadow of several alternating mountain ranges causing it to get only an average of two inches of rain a year.  Desert winds create interesting patterns and ripples in the sand of Tawny dunes at the base of the valley, an area below sea level.  The wave like patterns flow in contrast to the rugged mountain peaks that surround the valley.
