Titus Canyon

Death Valley - Titus Canyon
As Titus Canyon Road in Death Valley reaches the foothills, it starts to climb and meander among the sagebrush and red rock outcroppings. The road becomes steeper and narrower as it approaches Red Pass, amply named for its red rocks and dirt. Enjoy the ride!

Rainbow Bridge National Monument

Rainbow Bridge National Monument
DesertUSA takes you to Rainbow Bridge, the world's largest natural bridge. It is considered sacred by the Navajo Indians, for whom personified rainbows have stood as guardians of the universe. The bridge's predominant color is salmon-pink, with dark stains called desert varnish, caused by iron oxide (hematite). Afternoon sunlight makes the coloration especially brilliant.
