My wife Petra and I recently returned from our two week trip to Redwoods National Park. Along the way to Redwoods, we stopped at Death Valley N.P., Mono Lake, Yosemite N.P., and Lassen Volcanic N.P.

It is hard for me to believe that, as many times as I have driven past and around Death Valley, this was my first actual visit to the park. We only stayed a couple of days and didn't do any hiking - it was 112F - but here are a couple of shots I did manage to get:
