Death Valley

We just got back yesterday from 5 days in Pahrump, Nv and day trips to Death Valley.
This was the perfect time of year to go. Weather in Pahrump was cold and windy with a little rain thrown in to make our visit less than enjoyable but in Death Valley it was a very nice 80 degrees.
Lots of pictures. This one is of the Pup Fish. Death Valley is the only place on Earth where they live. The water they live in is extremely salty but it was the height of their breeding season.
These fish are only about 1" to 1 1/2" long and are very territorial, defending their egg laying territory and only live a couple years.

Now to get back to my quilt on the frame then a customer quilt cause I have more coming in in the next couple days.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.
