Places Visited, on Three Continents
PART THREE: NORTH AMERICA---U.S. State of CALIFORNIA
The Sierra Nevada of California from the Air in 2005
Winter scenes at the top of the Sierra Nevada (CA) from the air. Just photos, no dialogue.
A very quick visit close to Lands End in San Francisco, California. Flowers (!), trees, rocks and surf.
A tour of the Hazel-Atlas Mine in the Black Diamond Mining District of California (silica and coal). A tour you too can take thanks to the East Bay Regional Parks District!
The Mojave Desert (mostly California's Death Valley, but a few Nevada photos as well, after all, when it comes to flowers Mother Nature does not recognize state boundaries)
Visit to Hole in the Wall, Mojave National Desert Preserve, California
Visit to Mitchell Caverns, Mojave National Desert Preserve, California
The Amargosa River flows from Nevada into California, so here is a set of silent films created for Nye County, Nevada's Earth Day 2008, on the Amargosa River and Death Valley
DEVILS HOLE WORKSHOP Field Trips (in California and Nevada) links to photos and impressions from the annual workshop's field trips from 2004 through 2008
SIDE TRIPS in DEATH VALLEY in 2008: Salt Creek (a short hike along a creek with fish, vegetation and animal life) and Wingate Pass (a drive that did not reach the pass)
Photos from an extensive new 2009 Death Valley adventure including Titus Canyon, once again, and for the first time: Ubehebe Crater and Scotty's Castle.
A guided tour of Franklin Lake Playa in the Amargosa Valley just south of the Nevada state line: an interesting place, not just a flat, boring dry-lake bottom!
