The above photo is taken from a field trip in 2010 to Death Valley and surrounding mountains / desert. This stop was Monarch Canyon. We (the students) are standing at a cliff edge, looking across a gorge at the opposing cliff wall. That’s the best scale I can give you for this. It’s huge, it’s awesome.
