Ironic name for a place that seems to have no flora. Lovely photo.

Sweet.  Its cool how the ocean is covering up most of the road.  And the water looks so blue.

That would be a really cool place to visit.  The road looks very old.

This is a awesome photo. I like you can see the mountains in the back. Also I like how you can see the road far away.

This is an awesome picture. Can you actually walk on the little trail? Can you drive on it?

It is cool how you got the mountain in the background. Did you take the shot in the morning.

The rubble makes the scene appear flooded over and the whole thing is just stunning with the far away mountains in the background.

Is it a road or trail? The water looks as if it flooded over. AWESOME picture!

AWSOME photo. My favorite part of this photo is how the road is cracked instead of perfect. Also I like how the water looks melted.

Great capture, the leading lines bring you gracefully to a hazy point barrier, desolation to the left, desolation to the right. Great photos in the feature as well.
