“I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams…”  – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

“We sit silently and watch the world around us. This has taken a lifetime to learn. It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence. It is a waste, for silence is pure. Silence is holy. It draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking. This is the great paradox.”  – Nicholas Sparks

Telescope Peak with Hanupah Canyon alluvial fan in Death Valley National Park

Telescope Peak with Hanupah Canyon alluvial fan in Death Valley National Park

“Hanupah Canyon alluvial fan with Telescope Peak (elevation 11049 feet; 3368 m) in the Panamint Range rises above the Badwater Basin playa (below sea level) in Death Valley National Park (Inyo County). Light-colored channels indicated the location of stream channels that only drain to the valley floor during episodic storms. Some of these stream discharge events are in association with debris flows or debris floods that discharge materials onto the alluvial fan. This view is looking west from Dantes Peak in the Black Mountains on the east side of Death Valley. Death Valley’s dry lake bed (with salt flats) are in the foreground.”
