Golden Canyon - Detail
Golden Canyon, a side canyon in Death Valley, is amazing and other-worldly! The park gets very little rain, so many years ago the park service decided to put a road in on the dry wash visible in the lower left. The highly eroded hills in the foreground do not absorb water well, so a few years later when it rained, the wash filled up and the sheer force of it all washed the road away! Much more recently, in nearby Furnace Creek, a flash flood did the same thing to a two lane highway and forced park visitors to take a 60 mile detour (there are not many roads out here). - Ed
