Death Valley National Park

Death Valley

This was my first trip to Death Valley National Park,  and I couldn’t wait to check it out!  The size of the park is immense, and the landscape incredible.  I only had a few hours to spend here, which was not nearly enough.   There is just so much to explore.  It’s absolutely amazing, and at times quite surreal!

“Badwater Basin Death Valley”

Badwater Basin is at the lowest elevation in North America, at 282 feet below sea level.  The landscape is totally surreal, and made up of vast salt beds.

“Frolicking in Badwater Basin”

I couldn’t resist taking off my shoes and playing!  After heavy rainstorms, a temporary lake forms on the salt beds!
