Driving through Death Valley National Park, you can’t help but take in its vastness. However, don’t let its miles of desert landscape make you think there is a lack of activity in Death Valley; the park isn’t called Dearth Valley! Here you’ll find incredibly rare wildlife, evidence of early human history, sprawling sand dunes, and much more.

Death Valley is also home to mountain peaks that rise up to 12,000 ft (3,600 m); the second-lowest point in the Western Hemisphere, the Badwater Basin, which sits at 282 feet (86 m) below sea level; and the location of the world’s highest recorded temperature of 134 degrees Fahrenheit (57 degrees Celsius). It’s also the filming location for 100 films. Clearly Death Valley is a special park that is very much alive with unique stories and history.
