Death Valley National Park
Death Valley National Park straddles the Nevada border in the eastern central part of California. It is a good two hour trip from Las Vegas over to Death Valley. The park, which is the driest, hottest and lowest of all the national parks, encompasses 3,336,000 acres- of which we saw only a small portion yesterday. I certainly now have a different impression of the area. Until yesterday the words "Death Valley" brought to my mind visions of dry, sandy flat land. As you may see from the picture below, that is not true.
