I am one of those extremely fortunate people, I suppose, who has very few regrets about the choices she has made when facing that fork in the road, you know, when either way you go, whether left or right, can change your life completely -- except maybe in the year of 1970 when I decided to fix the transmission on my car instead of taking a trip to London. That's only because I did not realize how much I love traveling and the adventure that typically accompanies it. But I also did not truly appreciate the things I could have better appreciated through the eyes of a kid. I'm making up for some of that neglect and oversight now that I'm older and (I hope) a bit wiser. Smaller, intimate vacations that don't interfere with selling homes in Sacramento is my answer. Besides, it's good to come...

The blog I wrote today is not really about the wildflowers in Death Valley, although I included a bunch of photographs we shot of wildflowers on a hillside around 3,000 feet in elevation. Most of the wildflowers in Death Valley have already bloomed and died back this year, because the weather is unusually warm. Climate change most likely. But you can find wildflowers at a slightly higher elevation. The valley floor of Death Valley is about 200 feet below sea level in some places we visited. Early morning is also generally best for hikes but that would entail hauling one's body out of bed as the sun rises, a feat best left to some of the older people at our hotel. Ha, ha, yes, Death Valley is a good spot for people of a certain age to feel so much younger than all of the other tourists. ...

Everybody we talked to, including the park rangers, warned us that the trip to The Racetrack would take at least 8 hours, and we probably should not drive down that gravel road all by ourselves. Since driving that winding road would mean I would have to rent a jeep and drive it because my husband can't, and since I have actually owned a CJ5 myself many years ago and am a pretty darned good jeep driver, I considered it. But then it seemed like it would be far more enjoyable if I could shoot photos along the way and admire the scenery without driving off the road. We tried to hire the jeep tour across the road but all of their guides had recently quit, they said, and they were down to one person, and that one person was booked. Thank goodness for an internet connection and Google, because...

The one thing I have discovered since coming to Death Valley is there are more things to see and do than a person can probably accomplish in 5 or 6 trips to this remarkable National Park. Yet, we're trying to squeeze in as many attractions and serious photography as possible. Of course, everybody goes to Badwater Basin, because it's the one thing we can remember and have heard about before, but if you do nothing else in Death Valley, make sure you see Mosaic Canyon. This incredible natural phenomena is not the result of a glacier, although you might be tempted to believe so, it's actually created by water, sand and silt pounding and polishing the rocks. You can see all of the photographs and read more about Mosaic Canyon in my personal blog today about Death Valley Photos from Mosaic Ca...

To say I was unprepared for the beauty and spectacular views in 20 Mule Team Canyon would be a gross understatement. It would be like saying I sell only a few homes a year  in Sacramento. The place is incredible, and it's only the beginning of our adventure here in Death Valley National Park. I also had no idea that a resort in the middle of the desert could be such a wonderful place to stay even if they don't have room service anymore. We have a spring-fed pool on the property. And of course, there are Ingress portals here and a well stocked bar, so I'm happy. You can read more in my personal blog today and marvel at the photographs at this link: Photos from 20 Mule Team Canyon, Death Valley.

One Week Until Mount Whitney          Since moving to California nearly a year ago (WOW time flies), I've been fortunate enough to see some truly amazing places.  Since I was a kid I've been fascinated by the mountains, and where I lived in Delaware, well...we didn't have any of those.  Pennsylvania had mountains that were fun to visit to play in the snow, but none were too tall or intimidating.  Here in California, we've got some treacherous terrain.  I've gotten lost in the San Gabriel mountains, have climbed Mt Baldy (3 times now), and have hiked and climbed so long I needed a full day in bed for my knees & ankles to recover.        Next weekend I'll understake my toughest challenge yet.  Myself and 2 friends were fortunate enough to be selected for this years Mount Whitney lottery. ...

I'm in beautiful Mammoth Lakes, California This incredible sky was taken at Convict Lake nearby. Believe it or not we are outside waiting for our table for dinner. And the sunrise was just as stunning....althought the blue and pink had been replaced by red and orange. Convict Lake has an excellent restaurant, boat rentals, fishing docks and a camp ground. Set far from the main highway, it's a place time forgot. It got it's name after a famous gun battle between escaped Convicts and the Law....but now, just pure recreation. I had the Beef Wellington....delicious.

    I'm on vacation....yes, again! This time I'm in Mammoth Lakes with the extended family. Our family (or as much as could get away....darn grown kids), my parents and my 2 brothers and their families. We are hiking and fishing and boating and loving this area in the summer time. We have a couple of lovely condos right at the base of the mountain, right where those who ski might find it convenient (too cold for me). Mammoth Lakes is really just that. 8000 feet elevation and a bevy of beautiful mountain lakes to enjoy in the summer. There are trails for hiking and off-road....hoping to do some jeeping this afternoon. The condos are Snow Creek and I'm in love with them. They are managed for you, and you can also live here full or part time. There is a private golf course on the property...

My brother mentioned that he had viewed News channel several days ago about the "WILD FLOWERS" in Death Valley National Park, and how it's been almost 30 years since Death Valley has had such a huge turn out with some Wild Flowers. So Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz jumping in his car March 30th and drove out to Death Valley, with the short cut he knows it only took VB one & half hours to get there from Vegas. At first VB was looking around and thought that the News channels and other sources were pulling his leg, but after driving further in VB noticed Thousands of "Wild Flowers" everywhere. Here is a very short video of the "Wild Flowers" and the video shows very few flowers compared all of them growing out there. Temperature in Death Valley when this video was taken was around 102 degrees a...

 Within the next month I will be bringing everyone the natural Beauty of "Death Valley" California  Las Vegas and the surrounding areas have been getting hit real hard with rainfall. around 10 days ago Las Vegas Nevada had the same amount of rain in a day in a half then what we had in all of 2009.  That means around the 2nd week of March the wild flowers are going to all over the "Death Valley" National Park area.  So I will be going to Death Valley and sharing a part of the world that most people think is dead.  I have another photographer friend that has some photographs taken several years ago that are just breath-taking. And this year Robert Swetz (Vegas Bob) will be bringing the beauty to my friends at Activerain.  Here are some photos I shot last year on our visit to Death Valley...

   This blog is dedicated to Scotty's Castle in Death Valley and Scotty himself.  If you have never been to Scotty's Castle it is a must see and he was a remarkable man.  I am posting this blog in remembrance of Scotty and to the EXPRESS WITH PHOTOGRAPHS AT ACTIVERAIN  group.  I formed this group when I first joined Activerain and it is one of my favorite groups with some great members.  Here are just a few pics from Scotty's Castle in Death Valley and Scotty himself would be excited if he were around to read this post himself. There is a brass sign with some of Scotty's words that he lived by and I found he words to be very interesting.  Here is the red gate that goes to one of his open patios.  Looking down the spiral stair well  Where Scotty use to live  Some of the fees to view Scot...

 When I first came across this sign I had to laugh because there is no grass here, just a bunch of dirt and dried salt from being a part of the ocean bed thousands of years ago.  This was shot in Death Valley National Park and it might just be the Devil's Golf Course with temperatures through the Summer reaching 130 degrees plus.  The reason for the early post is because I am getting up very early and I won't have time to post it before I go to work.  Have a nice Friday and if you ever want to golf this course be sure you do it before Summer! photographs above taken by: Robert Swetz in Death Valley California, duplicating in any form is in violation of copyright infringement and subject to fines.  Please look at my new web site on photography www.SearchMyPics.com  Real Estate www.Vegas...

 We had a wonderful time in Death Valley and the different colors of the sand and mountains is breath taking. We may have planed our visit a little early because the flowers bloom in March some time, so we will be taking another drive to Death Valley in March.  In the photograph above it looks like water or ice in the middle of the picture, but that is salt!  The photos below show the many different colors of sand to create the striped colored mountains.  Below is another photo and the different colors.  Below is a Hotel over looking Death Valley.  Below is a photo of Nu Nu and Vegas Bob 282 feet below sea level, lowest point in the United States.  I will be posting more photos of Death Valley this week because I have so many, stay tuned!  photographs above taken by: Robert Swetz in De...
