I love the colors and textures of this view of the Panamint Valley and distant Panamint Range from the Father Crowley Vista.

But the coolest part about it was that it was only 85F (29C), some 30 degrees cooler than the floor of Death Valley, some 30 miles distant as the crow flies and 4,300′ feet lower in elevation.


The Panamint Range is the northwestern mountain boundary of Death Valley.

And before anyone thinks I need to straighten the picture, trust me, I don’t.  The Panamint Valley slopes steeply south in this view of the north end of the valley.
