Cambrian era peaks.
These stark buttes are seen as you come in from the east on Daylight Pass in Death Valley National Park, California. In the backdrop are the mountains of the Panamint Range. A spectacular panorama comes into view soon past what is known as Hell’s Gate. The road drops into Death Valley via a dramatic span of 13 miles beginning at an elevation of 3500 feet and ending up below sea level. Some of the most fascinating geology of Death Valley is right here in this area, including the shore lines of the erstwhile Lake Manly.
