Scale is hard in Death Valley. The small cluster of rocks in the distance rises 66 feet above the dry lake bed. It is the only feature that interrupts the 3 1/2 square miles of nearly flat playa. I can’t help but feel that I am like this rock outcropping everywhere I go in Death Valley – dwarfed by the surrounding mountains. A tiny, lonely creature among giants.
