That picture was taken by me in May of 1990 at the Itzalla Mine at Jackalope Flats located on Telescope Peak which straddles Death Valley and Panamint Valley. The elevation of the mine is 11,052 feet above sea level so obviously it doesn't look like the typical flatlander's idea of "desert".
If you have any doubt about my information you can verify it very easily by by inquiring of any of the staff at Panamint Springs to show you the other end of this desert megaphone communications system which is located on the roof of their store, they may even demonstrate it to you by contacting Itzalla Mine through the megaphone.
