In Death Valley National Park, near Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the United States, is a field known as the Devil’s Golfcourse. Salt formations stretch to the horizon in several directions. If you venture out into the treacherously sharp and brittle formations, you are surrounded by an alien world. The expansion and contraction of the salt fills the air with an otherworldly clunking sound, coming from all directions.
