Zabriski Point is one of the â€œmust seeâ€ spots in Death Valley â€“ and to say itâ€™s over-photographed is like saying fish are a â€œlittleâ€ damp. Each morning, thereâ€™s an entire battalion of photographers shoulder to shoulder taking the â€œnormalâ€ viewpoint. And hey â€“ thatâ€™s a cool viewâ€¦ BUTâ€¦ I wanted to try something different. So I decide instead of the normal front view, Iâ€™d climb the ridge to the side and see how that goes. Now, there really isnâ€™t a â€œtrailâ€ going up the side of this â€“ mostly just a steep drop off on one or both sides with a path thatâ€™s often less than a foot wide. One wrong step and itâ€™s a very unpleasant (and possibly final) ride to the bottom of the canyon. Itâ€™s also fairly steep and I can tell you from taking this photo that youâ€™re probably best NOT to try it in the dim pre-dawn light as I did. Oh, did I mention the rocks like to roll out from under your feet too? Maybe thereâ€™s a reason why I was alone that morning on the ridge, LOL. However intense, the hike up was well worth it. I LOVE the way this looks from the side â€“ especially with the sunlight just tickling the landscape. To say I was excited when I saw this come to life is an epic understatement! I hope you enjoy it too!
