Ah, Zabriskie Point. Is there anywhere on the planet more humbling than Death Valley?

Beautiful, Colin. Keep burning up them memory cards supplying us with images

More like a tinge of heatstroke sun poisoning radiation sickness. I am ducking out in laundromat/Starbucks/car wash in Victorville CA today.
I am washing the running engine at the car wash to get rid of some of the dust build-up from all of this off-roading.

What's the advantage to washing it while it's running? Probably a silly question, but my pea-brain can't come up with a good reason today.

It let's me know if I hit the wrong place by running rough. Also, alternators can throw water before it pools up and shorts anything.

I do not recommend this.

Ha! Colin talked to me about those two photos... that's not the sky! That's the salt pan and distant mountains of Death Valley.

I loved that trick of distance and space, to play with your mind's eye with the horizon. Sometimes you can imagine incredible mountains rising impossibly high, courtesy of a just-right cloud bank at the horizon, here, you could imagine that you were on a dizzying tight radius of a small planet where the sky was chasing down, and what sort of atmosphere would give these colors?
