Titus Canyon – an area of shadows and echoes…

rugged mountains, colorful rock formations, wildlife(invisible during daylight!), rare plants and spectacular canyon narrows as a “grand finale” – long story, short: it’s THE most popular back-country road in Death Valley National Park… 🙂

speakin’ of “canyon narrows”, I recall these famous lines:

“It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.”
(Invictus by William Ernest Henley)
