Day #58 Outcrop: Devils Golf Course

In keeping with the salty weekend theme I thought we’d do a round of geology at the Devil’s Golf Course. From the floor of Death Valley one can see Telescope Peak rising in the distance, nearly two miles of vertical relief from the salt pan in the foreground to the peak in the distance. The salt pan here is weathered into one of the most evil and unplayable lies a golfer could imagine. I used to have a hand sample of this surface, but it seems to have dissolved into the mists of time.
