I have returned from my trip to Death Valley. It was quite the trip. I did get a decent amount of shooting in, but the weather was the real story. I had the pleasure of visiting one of the driest places in the USA during an abnormally rainy winter known as El Niño. The valley usually receives just over 2 inches of rain each year. They received about 1.5 inches prior to my visit, which caused some flooding. During my visit, I experienced 3 more days of rain, two of which were significant. I learned a lot during this trip, and plan on sharing my experience day by day with blog posts over the course of the next 10 days.
