Death Valley California is the hottest, the lowest AND the driest place
in the Western Hemisphere! Why do 850,000 people visit Death
Valley each year? California has other deserts but none as well
known. Death Valley is like none other in harsh beauty, largely
unmarked by human endeavors. Our scenic drive takes you to
the highlights of this very special California destination.
Despite the extremes, there are many highly adapted plants and animals
in Death Valley as well great beauty among the dunes and peaks of this
famous desert. Hugging the easternmost border of California,
Death Valley is the largest national park in the conterminus U.S., much
of it inaccessible by passenger vehicle.
