Sunrise at Zabriskie Point

Sunrise at Zabriskie Point

Zabriskie Point is a part of Amargosa Range located east of Death Valley in Death Valley National Park in the United States noted for its erosional landscape. It is composed of sediments from Furnace Creek Lake, which dried up 5 million years ago—long before Death Valley came into existence.

The location was named after Christian Brevoort Zabriskie, vice-president and general manager of the Pacific Coast Borax Company in the early 20th century. The company's twenty-mule teams were used to transport borax from its mining operations in Death Valley.

The sunrises are spectacular in winter when moon is aligned. The near rocks are in shadows and far rocks are gloriously illuminated by rising sun.

You need to be there by 5 AM and ready to go.
