Path to Asteria
One of my favorite parts about the National Parks is how drastically beautiful a scene can be, just by turning around a corner. Every time I visit Death Valley National Park, for example, I find some new scene, that I had driven by but never stopped to investigate. Willie and I did a lot of this kind of exploring: stop the car wherever, and start walking.
On this particular evening we had a wonderful tour guide, David Thompson, who took us to an area he had driven by and decided to stop. It’s amazing how we turned the corner and all of a sudden an entire patch of mud-cracks and beautifully shaped sandstone towers loomed over us.
We witnessed a pretty nice sunset over this little area with a few clouds lingering around. I Loved this patch because it looked as if the 2 towers of rock were pointing to the sky, begging to be taken on to some place greater.
