    This is a great time of year to go. Awesome desolation from the air. It was like flying over Mars. It has its own particular beauty.

    •  Mars is about the way to look at it. . . (4+ / 0-)

      only not red. But a whole mess of other wonderful colors that's for sure. And you're right. . .the best time to make an appearance in the valley is November thru March. Then again, if you don't mind the heat, and I certainly don't, or the cold, I'm good to go with the valley 12 months any one of them. Then again, I'm strange that way. Thanks for posting your comment.

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.

      Comes to Death Valley National Park with the second annual Mars in the Mojave Festival sponsored by NASA, the SETI Institute and the National Park Service.

      Death Valley landscapes are examined as comparable landscapes to those encountered by the three Mars rovers.

      It should be another fascinating get-together of planetary scientists and Death Valley desert rats on March 1-3, 2013.
