Janus View (1991)

Janus was the Roman god of time, doorways, transitions, bridges, beginnings, and endings. He had faces on both the front and back of his head, letting him see simultaneously into the past and the future. That’s how the month of January got its name, as the transition, bridge, or doorway from the old year to the new.

So I think it’s appropriate to begin a Death Valley travel photo essay with what might be Janus’ view of both its mountain ranges. Ahead (facing east) is the Amargosa Range. The reflection shows the Panamint Range to the west.
