A field of salt pinnacles today, this used to be a lake more than 2000 years ago. When the lake evaporated, it left behind the layers of crystallized salt. This is constantly recreated as salty water is brough to the surface through capilary actions and then it evaporates resulting in new salt crystals. You can hear the noises made by the salt as it expands and contracts with the changes in temperature.
Remnants of a dry salty lake that existed 2000 years ago makes up Devil's Golf Course. The rock salt is 3-5 feet thick and quite difficult to walk on given the uneven terrain.
The Devil's Golf Course is a salt-pan area located pretty much in the middle of Death Valley.
You've got to hit a ball here...just to say you've done it!
When you get out farther, there are plates of the crust with fissures between, some of the plates tilted, like miniature versions of the tectonic plates of the earth
No snow - salt! Once the water evaporates, the minerals remain - and the minerals are SALT. This place is appropriately called 'Devil´s Golf Course'.
Thinking about bringing your golfclubs with you on this trip? Forget it! This course is even a bit to tough for most players...
It's covering a 15 miles stretch on the side of Badwater Road.This field of jagged salt crystals discovered by early emigrants. Some are over two feet high.
