There is beauty in the unusual, the extreme. My first knowledge of Death Valley came from my Earth Science teacher back in community college. He was passionate about our terrestrial world and what nature has to offer us. His energy was contagious, and I developed a love for the topic almost immediately. A few years went by until this year came, when my girlfriend and I were unexpectedly able to visit Death Valley together. It shattered my expectations — the beauty, the equanimity! I’m so thankful for this travel experience, for my girlfriend sharing such a dear interest with me, and for her company on this unforgettable journey// @passionpassport #PPGratefulFor
