Description
Telescope Peak from Zabrisksie Point. Telescope Peak is the highest point in Death Valley at over 11,000 feet. It was built up from the Panamint Mountains. Here there are Bristlecone Pines which are thousands of years old. Two women sitting on brick-enclosed ledge take in one of the most colorful views in Death Valley. Zabrisksie Point is in the Funeral Mountains and was once an ancient lakebed, and is now mudhills eroded by rain.
