Manly Beacon is a prominent peak when viewed from Zabriske Point. It was named for William Manly, one of the guides that led the party of settlers into Death Valley by mistake. Manly left the settlers, found a way out of the valley then returned to bring them safely out of the valley they named Death Valley. No one from that group of settlers died in Death Valley. They survived by finding shelter under their wagons during the day. They ate their oxen for food and drank water they collected from the night dew. Two children were strapped to one remaining ox for the trip out. The adults walked out with shoes made of rags. The wagons and their supplies were abandoned when they left the valley. A very narrow escape.
Louise is holding a hat because the wind was so strong. Shortly after this picture, she bent over to tie her shoe and her hat blew off. That was the last we saw of it. When it blew over the second line of hills I decided it wasn't worth retrieving.
