The Wonders of Death Valley

Yes...Death Valley has snow-capped mountains in the first week of March.  I couldn't believe the variety.  I'll attempt to show a little of that now.  All pictures are mine, taken from March 7-10, 2022.

Resorts with green grass and fountains:

Multi-colored, wind-smoothed hills:

Salt flats at 282 feet below sea level:

Surreal sunsets:

Outdoor mining museums and ruins:

Slot canyons:

Sand dunes:

Bighorn sheep:

Giant charcoal kilns that have stood for nearly 150 years:

Pinyon-juniper forests with snow along the trail:

Views of the valley floor 9000 feet below:

Wildflowers taking advantages of whatever road run-off there may be:

And yeah, possible death if you don't buy enough of that $8.75 gas when it's 120 degrees Fahrenheit:

I went at the beginning of March--probably one of the best times to go--and spent four full days there.  It wasn't enough.  I'd love to go back sometime.
