Death Valley National Park

Death Valley, CA - Badwater Basin

Home to the lowest surface point in the Western Hemisphere and the hottest temperatures in the United States, Death Valley National Park is a land of extremes – from the peaks of the snowcapped Panamint Range at over 11,000 feet to Badwater Basin at 282 feet below sea level at the bottom of Death Valley. Anyone visiting this park cannot fail to be impressed with the natural beauty here.

Just as it is hard to convey all of Death Valley in a single visit, it’s hard to convey through words the stark beauty of the Park. The scenery is simply amazing throughout the park and the extremes make it incredibly interesting to visit. Standing at Badwater Basin, looking up over 11,000 feet towards the Panamint Range, you see everything from one of the driest and hottest points, to a land with snow, rain and plenty of vegetation.
