Waves and folds

"Zabriskie Point offers a panorama of the badlands near Furnace Creek in Death Valley National Park. The overlook stands at the upper east end of a badlands terrain full of impressive canyons and gulches.

 

Zabriskie Point is a part of the Amargosa Range located east of Death Valley, noted for its erosional landscape. It is composed of sediments from Furnace Creek Lake, which dried up 5 million years ago — long before Death Valley came into existence.

 

The rare rain that comes to Death Valley arrives in the form of downpours, which form the rills and gullies that reshape the landscape."
