The second hottest and driest place on earth lies in California and is called Death Valley.
Since 1994 Death Valley belongs to the National Parks of the United States of America. Already since 1933 Death Valley is a National Monument.

In Death Valley is the lowest point (85 m below sea level) of California, Bad Water. A salt water pool where the only animal that survives is a snail.
Death Valley is completely surrounded by mountain ranges. In the east the Amargosa Range and to the west the Panamint Range. In the north the Sylvania Mountains and in the south the Owlshead Mountains.

In the summer the temperatures are intolerable in Death Valley. Temperatures running so high that many visitors sit in the car with airconditioning. The signs, turn of aircondictioning for the next 30 km, are a nice hint. A number of car and camper rental companies forbid driving through Death Valley in the summer holidays. Camping in Death Valley is possible, but at the campgrounds there are little or no facilities. Check this with the Ranger Station at the visitor center.

Nice places to stop en route are ofcourse Bath Water, Devil's Golf Course, the Sand Dunes at Stovepipe Wells and the visitor center.
