Zabriskie Point

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that one day I would see this stunning landscape in real life. But here I was, with scenes from Antonioni’s 1970 film passing before my eyes, breathing the dry desert air, feeling humbled by its enormity. And slightly disappointed to learn that it was named after Christian Brevoort Zabriskie, vice-president and general manager of the Pacific Coast Borax Company, and not Zabriskie Point, the film.

  1. In 1972, my wife and I stopped here while passing, on vacation, after seeing the film you mentioned. (The movie?…we had seen it prior to the trip and ranked it as the worst film we had ever watched! But we were young and into such films as “The Graduate,” and even “Midnight Cowboy,” By contrast, “Zebriski Point” was way, way out there…) A post including this lonely place (at the time, NOBODY was there,) is here –> https://mvschulze.com/2020/12/30/some-like-it-hot/ Nice images.
