Death Valley National Park: Hottest Place On Earth By Derek Anderson, Joel Anderson, 2021
- Death Valley National Park: Hottest Place On Earth
Death Valley National Park straddles eastern California and Nevada. It’s known for Titus Canyon, with a ghost town and colorful rocks, and Badwater Basin’s salt flats, North America's lowest point. Above, Telescope Peak Trail weaves past pine trees. North of the spiky salt mounds known as the Devil’s Golf Course, rattlesnakes live in Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes. As the hottest, driest and lowest national park, Death Valley is a land of extremes. The average temperature was 108.1⁰F including overnight lows. Daytime highs reached a temperature of 127⁰F for four days in a row.
