Death Valley National Park is full of otherworldly landscapes. One of my favorites was the expansive salt flats at Death Valley — dry plains covered with a thin layer of crusty mineral deposits which made the plains resemble a snowy field. When you walked over it, it even crunched under your feet like ice-crusted snow does.
There are over 200 square miles of salt flats at Death Valley and it is one of the largest protected areas of its kind in the world.

Foto Friday is a series where I go back through my archives to share photos that I love either because I think they are beautiful or they have an interesting story. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
