This colorful formation seen along Artist's Drive is known as the Palette. Death Valley's variety of features and vividness of color is fabulous, the flamboyant coloring and unique beauty is in a setting that was millions of years in the making.

Information on the marker:
Various mineral pigments have colored these volcanic deposits. Iron salts produce the reds, pinks and yellows. Decomposing mica causes the green. Manganese supplies the purple. Colors on the "palette" are reproduced in a larger scale on the mountains around Death Valley.

Hello from the Mackinac Bridge


THE MACKINAC BRIDGE
In Michigan -- The Water Wonderland
An early morning view from the bridge maintenance area. That's the Mackinac Bridge bus on the roadway at left. It maintains schedules between St. Ignace and Mackinac City. A lake freighter passes serenly (sic) eastward under the center span with scarcely a ripple. The green cable coming directly toward the camera doesn't look very big, but it is 24-1/2" in diameter and contains 12,580 wires.
