very amazing place to visit. You are in the lowest spot in the USA and it almost seemed eerie to us. Death Valley is a place to visit

Easy to imagine how desperate pioneers must have felt - standing at the bottom of the valley in extreme heat with the mountains all around and the only water being completely undrinkable. The salt flats look like fields of snow. Incredible.

Fascinating place and well worth the walk out onto the salt lake. The formations in Badwater lake are fascinating. Be sure to turn around and take a look up on the cliffs behind you to spot the "Sea Level" sign up above you!

A visit here is just a tick on the list. The site is the lowest point in the USA and therefore noteworthy however apart from that very little of interest.

Whenever you visit Death Valley please go to this point. Badwater is an amazing place! Be sure to carry enough water with you when you walk onto the salt flats. It's the lowest level in U.S.A. and I believe one of the hottest as well.
