Valley of Death

Why? More on this later. For now, I’ll rely on the NPS.

Why is it called Death Valley? Death Valley was given its forbidding name by a group of pioneers lost here in the winter of 1849-1850. Even though, as far as we know, only one of the group died here, they all assumed that this valley would be their grave.

These images come from a long time ago in my photographic work.
