"Hot enought for you?" Death Valley National Park Off The Beaten Path Tip by goingsolo

  Death Valley National Park
by goingsolo

Then highest recorded air temperature in Death Valley is 134 degrees f. The highest recorded ground temperature is 201 degrees f, just lower than the boiling point of water. I also read that temperatures often top 120 degrees during the summer. I can't imagine driving my car through that heat, let alone a wagon train, as aspiring immigrants, miners and others did in the early 19th century.
