When you think of a desert, do you think flat wasteland of hot lifeless death? Do you think of the history it holds or the stories it possesses? It’s probably the last place anyone wants to explore or visit.
Now that we are back from Death Valley, let me tell you how wrong all of these things are. Believe me, I’ve seen my share of pictures of Death Valley and I still had a different outlook on it to begin with. Boy were my eyes opened. Everything I expected or envisioned was totally thrown out of the window! Even pictures and video did no justice to the amazing things I experienced!
Death Valley is the hottest, driest, and lowest National Park with its below-sea-level basin, steady drought and record summer heat. Each extreme has the most striking contrast, snow capped peaks from winter snow, fields of wildflowers from rare rainstorms, magical hidden locations teaming with wildlife and fish, and despite the harsh name, there is a great diversity of life. Part of the Mojave desert in Eastern California and the hottest place on earth, Death Valley was named in 1849 during the California Gold Rush. In 1933 it was proclaimed Death Valley Monument by president Herbert Hoover, placing it under federal protection. In 1994 the monument was redesignated as Death Valley National Park.
