Badwater Basin, the wonder of nature in Death Valley
Series of photographs taking into one of the “must-go” places in Death Valley, Badwater Basin, a wonder of nature.
The salty pool at Badwater, just beside the main park road 18 miles south of Furnace Creek, is probably the best recognized and most visited places in Death Valley. The hottest, driest and lowest point in North America at 282 ft below sea level and a previous recorded temp of 134 F.
Hiking is not something that can be taken lightly. It can be life-threatening as you see and hear on the news, people die or get lost all time. Please, if you are going to hike, never go alone and prepare for the worst, hope for the best. Remember when going for a hike, no matter how short you think it may be, always be prepared. Carry at least two liters of water for every five miles (more if the weather is warm), protein bar, nuts, and electrolytes. Wear sturdy lug sole shoes and protective clothing.
