I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.

Zabrisky Point ~ Death Valley National Park
This was taken at one of those sometimes missed opportunities when it is windy, light is fading, and everyone in the car is hungry and ready to quit for the day. Yep, we reluctantly stopped at this famous point along with I must admit more than a few tourists. As it turned out the sunset was breathtaking, lighting inspiring, and the wind invigorating.
