Death Valley -
Although Death Valley is in California, it's right on the California-Nevada border, closer to Las Vegas than to Los Angeles. Apart from the unexpected snowcapped mountains of winter, it's a lonely and arid place pockmarked with suspicious looking mounds and crackling salt flats, crisscrossed by crevassed earth and powdered with relentless sand dunes. This is where Scorcese men, wearing lightweight suits, gold pinkie rings and dark sunglasses, talk serious business while turkey buzzards make allegorical circles overhead.
Death Valley National Park -
Named features on maps of Death Valley include the Funeral Mountains, Coffin Peak, Hell's Gate, Starvation Canyon and Dead Man Pass - this is clearly a place with a bad history, reflecting the troubles and misfortunes endured by the pioneers who first traversed, inhabited and mined the region during the end of the last century.
