Note: Desert Paradise does not include location information for all of the places featured in our personal photo portfolios of Death Valley. Specifically, we receive a lot of requests for information about an expanse of large mud tiles. Although the area is more well-known now, we committed to not sharing the location publicly when we were told about it in 2015. The ebook does include references to areas where you can find mud patterns and tiles with some exploring on your own.
