Die Geisterstadt Rhyolite mit den Skulpturen von Albert Szukalski (sehr cool!) lag auch auf unserer Route, ebenso wie das Devil's Postpile National Monument, ein Kliff aus unglaublich regelmäßigen sechseckigen Basaltsäulen in der Sierra Nevada.
Vorbei am Mono Lake mit seinen bizarren Kalktuff-Gebilden ging's dann zum Yosemite National Park.
Of course we have also paid Las Vegas a short visit, which has changed quite a bit since the 70s. Then we went on to Death Valley National Park with its impressive landscape formations. Badwater Basin, which is covered with a salt crust, is located 86m below sea level and is the lowest point in North America!
Along our route lay the ghost town of Rhyolite with the sculptures of Albert Szukalski (very cool!), as well as the Devil's Postpile National Monument, a cliff in the Sierra Nevada formed from incredibly regular hexagonal basalt columns.
Passing Mono Lake with its bizarre tufa structures we finally drove to Yosemite National Park.
