Death Valley pt. 1

out of andrewThis weekend The Visual Collective and I headed out for another adventure. The past few weeks we have been on some day-trips around Arizona, this time we went to Death Valley, Calif. on a four day creative excursion. There are tons of great images on the way as well as some fun behind the scenes stuff. Keep reading to see a few quick photos and introduction. tributary We went to Willow Beach on the Colorado River and rented a boat for a few hours. The above photo is from our campsite on Lake Mead a little later in the day.
