Zabriskie Point

One of the highlights in Death Valley National Park is Zabriskie Point in the Amargosa Range, just east of Death Valley itself. Named after Christian Brevoort Zabriskie, vice-president of the Pacific Coast Borax Company in the early 20th century, Zabriskie Point is known for its erosional landscape, formed of sediments from Furnace Creek Lake, which dried up five million years ago. Featured here are the Red Cathedral, the rock formations at right, and Manly Beacon, the pointy rock at left.
