“This is worth seeing”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Lowest point on earth. I thought I'd been there a few times, but now it's official. Called Badwater because even the mules wouldn't drink the salty water there. It's worth a look just to say you've been there and to get a photo. Bring sunglasses or your pupils will be fried, everything is white.

“Great race and not for the faint at heart.”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

This is a great race and great endeavor for anyone who will accelpt a great challenge. If you can enjoy the heat, long distances and the elevations the race will reward you with some pretty nice scenery even at 2 am at night while you are completing the course.

“Lower than a snakes belly ...”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

What little rain there is runs off the mountains and, if it doesn't evaporate on the way, ends up here. It was too hot to hang around (July) but you can go down to the water if you're game (... or fire retardant)

“A Must-See”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

This is a must-see feature of the park. It is easy to get to, easy to visit, and interesting. Loads of tour buses make this a destination stop, but given the size of this feature, crowds do not actually detract from this area, so jump in and make it one of your stops in the park. You will be rewarded for doing so.
