Did you know?

The 100-mile long Panamint Range of mountains forms the western wall of Death Valley.


Edward Weston, the first photographer to receive a Guggenheim Foundation fellowship, used the money to photograph throughout the American West and Southwest in 1936–38. One of the last of those trips was a four-day stay in Death Valley. In both Panamints, Death Valley and Clouds, Death Valley (1988.144), Weston contrasted the solid, stable tops of the mountains that ring the valley with lacy, wispy fleeting cloud formations.
