Death Valley National Park (25.10.2013)

After leaving Las Vegas I decided to take the road through the Death Valley National Park on my way to the west. Death Valley National Park is situated in the Mojave desert and is mainly known for its dry and hot environment. It is the place holding the world record for the highest temperature ever measured. On July 10, 1913 a temperature as high as 56.7 °C was measured at the weather bureau’s observation station at Greenland Ranch. Another interesting fact is that the second-lowest point in the western hemisphere is in Badwater Basin, which is 86 meters below sea level.
