Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
Death Valley National Park is the largest national park outside of Alaska, Death Valley is an almost unfathomable place. The park’s 3.3 million acres /1.34 million hectares encompass mountain-size sand dunes, below-sea-level salt flats, mysterious singing rocks, and colorful sandstone canyons. Extremes are the norm: Death Valley is the hottest and driest place in America, with summer temperatures peaking above 120 F°/49°C, and average rainfall of 2 inches/5 cm per year. Also extreme are the park’s elevations: Badwater Basin, the park’s lowest spot, rests at 282 feet/86 meters below sea level while Telescope Peak soars to 11,049 feet/3,368 meters. So go high, or go very, very low; get hot, or chill out with amazing desert vistas. Death Valley delivers on every end of the scale.
Death Valley National Park is located in central California just to the west of the Nevada border. Heads up, it is Hot in the summertime. If you decide to visit the park in the summer months do yourself and your car a favor; drive with the AC off. Otherwise you will overheat your car. There is a garage and a tow truck service at Furnace Creek. There are some interesting formations and sights to see that are miles apart from each other. Make sure your car has plenty of gas. In my opinion the best time to visit the park is from October to March. Best photo opportunities are early in the morning and late in the evening. Despite the name, Death Valley is worth seeing.
