Parched

ParchedWhile driving south on CA-127, I was admiring the landscape when I spotted a large, for Death Valley, pool of water just off the side of the road so I pulled over to investigate.  I believe there had been rain in the higher elevations to the east and the water was draining to the low point of the valley to the west.  The highway had a culvert and this pool was just to the west of it.  There was enough water that it had created a decent sized pool and stream that continued west.  I walked along it looking for some interesting opportunities and found this.  Here is a map of where this was shot.  If you enable satellite view and zoom in enough you’ll see the culvert, dry pool, and stream bed (map).
