Got up at 5 am to catch a sunrise over Zabrieskie Point
The moon is still visible
A cold and sleepy Dave
Morning is breaking
One of my favorites, looks like chocolate dipped ridges
The photographers are lining up...not a welcoming site for us upper photographers
Early clouds, looking like ocotillo cactus
Notice the shadow of my legs and our Westies
Death Valley awakening in the morning sun
Everybody loves to leave their mark!
Dante's View overlooking Death Valley, CA
Death Valley from the east end
Salt deposits make it look like a lake down below
Climbing on rough terrain, our Westies love this
Peeking over the edge, but safely, after all it's over 5000' straight down from here!!
The dogs have no fear of heights, that's why we need to keep them on a leash. Its pretty cold and windy at this altitude, especially at 8am.
Excited to be on my road bike after a couple of months of recouperating from knee surgery!
Starting out ...not knowing that the grade is going up up up for two miles
Views on Artist Drive, Death Valley, CA
Humping up the hill road
Very difficult ride up the hill
Still trying, even though I am realizing that I am up for a BIG challenge
Water break, Artist Drive, Death Valley, CA
Nature, the road, the bike and me
Look for me in this picture.
Well deserved rest!
