Death Valley

Description:

From the lowest point, Badwater (282 feet below sea level) to the sand dunes, the "Race Track", the badlands, the "Devil's Golf Course", the "Devil's Corn Field" and other locations within the park, Death Valley provides the visitor with a surreal visual experience.

Death Valley is the largest national park, containing over 3.3 million acres, and is 95% wilderness. It's many interesting locations are separated by long dirt roads that are best traversed in a 4-wheel drive vehicle. As I visited each new area, I just had to keep wondering what it must have been like for those weary travelers, the 49ers, who crossed into Death Valley on their way to California. Having endured so many hardships already, I wonder what it must have been like to arrive in this god forsaken valley. What courage they must have had in order to endure so many hardships.

But even though Death Valley is aptly named for its extremely harsh environment, one can't help but leave there with a sense of awe and wonderment and a desire to go back again.
