I've been traveling to Death Valley for many, many years, but have never driven the Cottonwood Canyon Road to its end. We usually get sidetracked up the much more interesting Marble Canyon on the way up. But this year we made it a point to drive to the end of the road and go on a little hike. Along the way, I spotted a bit of geology (not hard to find in DVNP!).

I'm not going to try and explain, geologically, what's going on here, or to assign an age-date to this interesting bedding plane. We probably wouldn't agree, anyway. So, let's just enjoy this photo of some intersting rocks!

Tim Hanko, Pam J have particularly liked this photo
