Day 10 – Artist Drive (Death Valley)

NO surprise…this was Kaatje’s favourite place in   the park.  Artist’s Drive rises up to the top of an alluvial fan fed by a deep canyon cut into the Black Mountains. Artist’s Palette is on the face of the Black Mountains and is noted for having various colors of rock. These colors are caused by the oxidation of different metals (red, pink and yellow is from iron salts, green is from decomposing tuff-derived mica, and maganese produces the purple).
