DEATH VALLEY the hottest place on earth….its not just the climate.


The hottest place on earth is also the koolist place to visit. Its not really a valley either. Millions of years ago two tectonic plates crashed together. After they separated this enormous gulf of land was created between the two plates.


There are golden and red canyons, gorgeous sand dunes of the Mojave Desert, salty mud flat, ghost towns, volcanic craters and in the winter snowcapped mountains. There are even unexpected surprises like a Spanish Provincial style castle know as Scotty’s Caste.

This was my first visit to Death Valley National Park and it exceeded my expectations and I can’t wait to come back.

Here are the places that I visited: Artist's Way, Zabriiske Point, Manly Beacon, Ubehebe Crater, Golden Canyon, Rhyolte Nevada, Badwater, Mesquite Flats Sand Dunes, The Last Supper by Artist Albert Szukalski, Mojave Desert, Scotty's Castle.
