A few more old photos from Death Valley, this time from Salt Creek, a small, salty stream that eventually empties into the Death Valley salt flats. The creek merits a boardwalk nature trail because it's the sole home of the endangered Salt Creek pupfish, a tiny fish that's adapted to live in the creek's salty and often hot water. I did see a few of the fish but somehow ended up without any photos of them, just a few of the nature trail and plants along it. The existence of the plants here is kind of remarkable too, but I've got to say they're no desert pupfish. So if you want to see more pupfish, there are a few decent photos here. There are also a number of YouTube videos of the fish, like this for example, if you're interested.
