Photos taken in Fall Canyon, a beautiful and very remote gorge in the heart of Death Valley.­

For those who are familiar with this area, Fall Canyon is just North of Titus Canyon and it can only be traveled by foot.­ Several beautiful narrows are located in the first 4 miles of the canyon (starting from the mouth on the west side).­ The seemingly impassable cliff (a dry waterfall) 3 miles from the canyon mouth can be bypassed by an easy (albeit slightly exposed) trail on the south side (look for the kern about 30 yards before the fall).­ The best narrows are just above the cliff! Another similar cliff is located at about 7 miles.­ To get to Fall Canyon, park at the Titus Canyon parking area and hike north on the trail from about 3/­4 miles, to the mouth of the canyon.­
