Forest Canyon Overlook

[Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, USA]
On the Train Ridge Road (US34) – experiencing alpine tundra and waiting for more stormy clouds. Stop #5 – Forest Canyon Overlook.
For sure Train Ridge Road is one of the most scenic America’s roads and the highest continuous highway in USA. It was not possible to get much further, as the road was still closed for winter season (picture taken in May).
Quite unusual to get at this elevation (11716 feet, which is over 3,5km) with such comfortable road.

Yellow hope

[Death Valley National Park, California, USA]
Death Valley – saline, cracked shell. It is the hottest and driest of the national parks in USA, with temperatures reaching 50°C. The only water you can find here is very salty and not drinkable, of course. Even thought, some plants have adapted to this environment – impressing determination to survive.
