Death Valley

[singlepic id=245 w= h= float=center]
After Red Rock Canyon State Park we made our way into Death Valley. This exposure was taken close to the Golden Canyon in Badwater Basin, which, at its lowest point, is about 85 meters below sea level, and it is both the lowest and hottest spot in the States. At Furnace Creek we experienced 110 °F/43 °C at noon, and even at night standing outside felt like having a hair dryer blow into our faces. People have adapted to this by putting water fountains everywhere and by advising visitors to drink about one liter per hour, as well as to eat a lot of salty things. It is an amazing place to visit, but I would not want to live there permanently.
