One of the most spetacular views in a national park full of them, here one can see over two miles of vertical relief, from Badwater, near the bottom of the image, 282 feet below sea level, to Telescope Peak, in the Panamint Range, 11043 feet above sea level. The white area at the center of the GigaPan is the salt pan of Death Valley, including the aptly named Devils Golf Course (www.gigapan.org/gigapans/52251/). Individual alluvial fans can be seen on the valley floor at the base of the Black Mountains (foreground) and across the valley, at the base of the Panamint Range, they merge together into an apron of sediment known as a bajada.

This is another GigaPan that previously stitched with a Rainbow Bug (www.gigapan.org/gigapans/52231/) but is now viewable in all the glory nature intended you to see thanks to the updates in GigaPan Stitch 1.4. Thanks again to Paul Heckbert for getting this bug squashed.
