Death Valley Mesquite Flat Dunes

 

Mesquite Flat Dunes located in central Death Valley. The dune field includes three types of dunes: crescent, linear, and star-shaped. Polygon-cracked clay of an ancient lakebed forms the floor. Mesquite trees have created large hummocks that provide stable habitats for wildlife.

Death Valley is surrounded by warped mountains of the visually diverse landscape of colors and patterns.
