"Each act of unfaithfulness toward our inner being is a blot on our souls. If we continue to be unfaithful, our souls are eventually torn apart and we slowly bleed to death." -- Albert Schweitzer

410--California: Death Valley, a Low Point
@ CherieSpotting     Apr 14 2008 - 19:36 PST
cherie writes: It may be the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere, but Badwater isn’t all that bad. (But don’t drink the water!) Sure it’s hot in April, but Greg, Karem, Dean and I managed to gather some of the salt-crusted earth and build a small tribute (we called it salt art) to nature in the ninety degree heat.

As the sun set, we headed to Ubehebe Crater for a stroll around its lip. Also known as marr volcanoes, Ubehebe and the surrounding craters were formed about 3,000 years ago—which explains all their wrinkles! Enjoy these photos of Badwater and Ubehebe Crater taken from Death Valley, California.
