And now...allow me to present the Half Dome of Death Valley...the rock you can't get through the park without paying photographic homage to...Manly Beacon at Zabriskie Point. • Rising like an inverted waffle cone from a swirly sea of melted ice cream and fudge sauce, it commands the scene with its surreal texture and tones. Best viewed just before sunrise when the subtle shades catch the first light of dawn, Manly Beacon and its neighbor Red Cathedral are a geological Sonny and Cher. Different, striking...an unlikely pairing that just seems to work. If you have time to see only ONE thing in Death Valley, Zabriskie Point pretty much has to be it. • But don't stop at the lookout! The hike between Zabriskie Point and Golden Canyon traverses through some amazing terrain and will quickly drop you into a place of complete peace and solitude. At only 3 miles long it's easy to do as a one-way hike with car shuttle, though I prefer making it a 6 mile out-and-back...the views from both directions are stunning.

Shiva the destroyer, in his natural habitat - Death valley national park. Hinduism's concept of trimurti is unjustly approximated as three Gods that's - Bramha(creator), Vishnu(protector) and Shiva (destroyer). These forms are manifestations of a single superpower. . I interpret this as designation of work in its earliest and purest form. While I'm a daughter to my parents, I'm also a sister and I don so many more roles in life to the people whom I mean a thing. This means I have different duties to deliver depending on the role I get into. Who I'm as a person, is the same but very different when I'm in one of these baskets. A role is not a confinement, in fact it's an expansion and a newer dimension on top of who we all choose to be. There's no point in conflicting between the duties of each roles, if you have the zeal to get yourself figured out in life. . Similarly, different followers of the trimurtis may have originally found each of their idols fascinating and captivating. They may have adored that role that the cosmic superpower played as a creator or a protector or a destroyer. None of this fascination should make any one any greater or any lesser than the counterparts for they are the one and the same. When we all realize this as a species, each of the sects of hinduism such as shaktism, shaivism, vaishnavism etc.., will all be accepted as the most awesome colors of a beautiful phenomenon like rainbow. It doesn't stop there. Every other religion is a new band in the spectrum. All art forms begin, converge there. We can choose to be right or fight. . Coming to the place in the picture, I think death valley is grossly a misnomer considering the diversity of plant species and formations I saw there. There's a chromium-rich orange crater, there's pristine snowy salt flats, canyon like structures and yellow and people super bloom during spring! The picture has the magnificent Zabriskie point in the background. Who ever named it death valley, go take tuitions
