Death Valley is a National Park located in California. It's a desert valley surrounded by mountains. Air gets trapped in the valley making it one of the hottest places on earth. The hottest air temperature ever recorded in Death Valley (Furnace Creek) was 134 °F (57 °C) on July 10, 1913. It was 115 °F (44 °C) when I was there. The Badwater area is the lowest point in the western hemisphere @ -282ft.
