  1. Alluvial Fan at Death Valley (1) - Alluvial fan in the morning looking east from the sand dunes.

    Alluvial fans in Death Valley are huge and long. This is one of the most fascinating land formations in Death Valley. As the streams flow out of the steep mountains through narrow canyons into flat land, the rocks, pebbles and sediments get deposited just outside the canyon. The stream eventually loses speed and in Death Valley, disappear. The landscape acquires the shape of a fan over time.
    Alluvial fans occur on the land just as a delta forms near the ocean. They occur in a number of places. In Death Valley, you will be able to see the huge fans and I think these are some of the most beautiful land formations of nature.

    Don't forget to park your car and walk into the field on either side of the road. The field may be muddy and slippery on rainy days.

  7. Sand Dunes at Death Valley (1) - Sand dunes at sunrise
    Park your car along the road and walk about half a mile on the north or west side of the road. You can walk anywhere on the dunes. Sand will get into your shoes but won't hurt. I found that it was not very easy to slide as the dunes were quite damp. If you are using a tripod, cover the bottom of the legs with a plastic bag, or the sand will get into the screws and knobs. Sunrise and senset are spectacular from the sand dunes. A walk under full moon is also quite nice. You almost do not need a flash light on the dunes under full moon. You will need one on your way to the dunes from the road though.

    Sand dunes are a great fun place for children.
