“The desert takes our dreams away from us, and they don’t always return…. Those who don’t return become a part of the clouds, a part of the animals that hide in the ravines and of the water that comes from the earth. They become part of everything … They become the Soul of the World.” – PAULO COELHO, The Alchemist
There are always things I realize I could have done and should have done differently after completing a trip. For example, driving over 3000 miles with the rental car in 8 days whilst trying to photograph 6 National Parks. Yeah…that was a bit much…..
Not sure if I actually came to a complete stop when I captured this one to be honest with you 🙂
I will give you one tip though. If even considering a stop or a trip through Death Valley, line up the hotel WAY in advance. Not much to choose from out there and in retrospect, I wish I had the chance to enjoy that deep dark sky that I am sure was there this particular night. As there was no room at the Inn, I had no choice but to keep driving and bed down in Nevada. Again, live and learn.
What an amazing place though….
