Devil’s Cornfield
Death Valley National Park

February 2024

Nestled between Stovepipe Wells and Beatty Junction along Highway 190, you'll discover the enigmatic Devil's Cornfield, just a stone's throw east of the Mesquite sand dunes. Here, the landscape is adorned with the distinctive presence of arrowweed (Pluchea sericea), an evergreen plant that weaves tales of its ancient use. Echoing its common name, this remarkable plant once served as the sturdy backbone for crafting arrows by Native Americans, adding a touch of history to the allure of this unique terrain.

Prints are available through my Pixels - Fine Art America site.  See more of my Death Valley National Park photography here.
