Nature Finds a Way

I spent part of last week exploring Death Valley National Park in California. This shot is from a hike along the Badlands Loop, which we tried after watching a glorious sunrise at Zabriskie Point (photos of that to come!).

In October, DV had 1000 years worth of rain in one sitting. The result was lot of destroyed roads, flooded buildings, and new mud washes, which are now drying up.

Despite the conditions, the flora and fauna persevere. Nature finds a way, you know? 🙂
