USA Road Trip 2012 (6): Zabriskie Point is not just a movie

Michelangelo Antonioni named a whole 1970 movie after this place and shot some of the scenes on location.
Zabriskie Point.
On the eastern fringe of Death Valley near the Nevada border, this area is characterised by erosional landscape with breathtaking views of canyons. Stripes of yellow and grey rock formations surround you as you stand on the main viewpoint. Badlands: barren landscape, almost lunar, out of this world.

Definitely worth a stop while you are travelling the area!
