The Sunflower Goes to Death Valley Without her Owner

Sometimes you have to let your teardrop trailer have all the fun. While I was busy working and taking care of my mother, my husband, and our friend Andres, took the Sunflower down to Death Valley for a winter photography trip.

Along the way they stopped at the funky International Car Forest of the Last Church in Goldfield, Nevada for the obligatory shot of a teardrop trailer among junk cars. They also stopped in Rhyolite, a former ghost town that was once owned by Charles Schwab. The town is now home to the Goldwell Open Air Museum and features modern art such as the ghostly "The Last Supper" and the "Lady Desert: The Venus of Nevada."

Our intrepid photographers stayed at the Furnace Creek RV Park for a week—a campground that can fill up rather quickly when Death Valley is in the '70s and the rest of California is experiencing rain and snow.
