Wow, what a sparse and fascinating landscape. It is a large park, with a lot of barren roads, and the heat is not a joke even in late May. I camped at Panamint Springs Resort, which I can’t recommend more highly. It is less populated than the campgrounds inside the park, and it is at 2000ft, which means mild highs and lows and a comfortable night’s sleep (and a flush toilet! At a campground! Unheard of.)
If there’s one thing I can take away from this photo shoot, it’s that I clearly like pictures of roads…

Badwater Basin – the lowest and driest location in North America, at 282 feet below sea-level. Yes, it was hot there.
