Zabriskie Point

Zabriskie Point in Death Valley National Park.  A great place to isolate yourself from the Corona Virus except the National Parks are all closed.

The location was named after Christian Brevoort Zabriskie, vice-president and general manager of the Pacific Coast Borax Company in the early 20th century. The company's twenty-mule teams were used to transport borax from its mining operations in Death Valley. (from Wikipedia)

You might try to look up the 1970 movie "Zabriskie Point" directed by Michelangelo Antonioni.

I have never seen anything like this. Thank you.
OK...shows how bored I am...I just went and watched the movie. Terrible movie. Desert scenes are there, but Harvey, your picture is far better and of immensely better quality. Silly movie. Thought it was just me so I went and read reviews. No, it was actually a really crappy movie.
Harvey, you are a font of information!! Good picture taker too!:-))
