A nice find. What a view!

We drove a somewhat "rough" gravel road a short distance from the Father Crowley view point to a land isthumus point with a dynamite view of the Panamint Valley and the road we would soon be traveling toward Stovepipe Wells. The geology everywhere in Death Valley National Park is mind boggling from the smallest stones to the biggest landscapes.

Here is a link to a visit my wife and I made to other parts of Death Valley National Park back in February of 2010. The racetrack playa and the laughable "teapot junction" were favorites on that trip:
