Darwin Falls | Death Valley National Park, California

Return of Lake Manly | Lake in Death Valley | Death Valley National Park, California

Over time, Death Valley floor gradually became one of the lowest, hottest and driest places on earth. Lake Manly slowly evaporated leaving the salt flats at the base of Death Valley. Occasionally, a memory of Lake Manly returns to the floor of Death Valley in times when enough moisture manages to make it over the surrounding mountains. During this wet enough Winter, I had to stop and explore, making it nearly to the middle of the valley, to the shore of the very temporary Lake Manly. Route details: 2-4-mile RT; **Salt Flat, Streams and a Temporary Lake.
