Death Valley
Death Valley

  One of the most formidably hot, dry, and hostile environments in the USA.  It is the lowest spot on the continent and has a veritable  host of different scenic panoramas.

  It is bordered on all sides by mountains, the valley is full of sand dunes and at the far end lies Scotty's Castle. The furnace creek inn provides an oasis for the traveler and a place to light and relax for a while.  See  pictures of the valley
