Sadly, not my picture. My wife took this just outside our room at Furnace Creek Ranch in March. And no, that’s not us. We were sitting in similar chairs right behind them, though. Just sucking down beer after a long day of climbing through canyons. Life was good…….
I’m not sure if Furnace Creek – and there is a creek, by the way – is technically an oasis or not. But it sure looks like one. There’s real dirt, real grass, lots of trees, and a spring fed swimming pool (just off to the right). Drive a half mile in either direction and you’re back in the desert.
Anyway, it’s a place I wouldn’t mind going back to. It’s a remarkable park, both geologically and photographically. But don’t worry – I promise I won’t post any more Death Valley images. Well, at least not for a while. I’m sure I can find something else to photograph. Something around here. Around Rochester, I mean. Something. Somewhere.
