Tea Kettle Junction

Overlooking Death Valley from Chloride Cliffs. (CROSHAWK - not his real name - left and LL right) We both served in the Navy with SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team One, but at different times. My son-in-law, Braden took the photo (above). CROSHAWK came out to visit from where he is stationed on the East Coast for a visit and a romp in the dirt. 
There are a large number of odd things in Death Valley. This is a crossroads where people began leaving tea kettles. I don't know when the practice began, but when you go (and it's in the middle of nowhere), you are obliged to add to the collection.
There's nothing but old mining roads for hundreds of miles. Death Valley is a very big place.
