Wow, supercool pictures! I see that you have an eye for the details of photography.
I like especially the ghost town pictures. Thanks for sharing!

A few more. I spent 2 weeks recently camping and hiking around Death Valley and Beatty, NV.

I had the good fortune of booking a room at the newly reopened Belvada Hotel in Tonopah.

I've been camping at this spot outside of Beatty for 8 years now and it never gets old. It's always been open, I've never seen anyone else there, and the Sunsets are great.

And Death Valley:

I got an Early start, and hiked up Gower Gulch from the parking lot on the Badwater side. I did a figure 8 up to the top of Golden Canyon, JUST shy of Zabriskie Point, and then back down to Gower Gulch and over to and then down Golden Canyon. I made the detour over to Red Cathedral and out. I started to see more and more people at Red Cathedral and below.

Sidewinder Canyon. This was awesome and exactly what I wanted in a hike. Again, we got an early start and started to see people on our way back to the car.
