Death Valley National Park

Badwater Basin is one of the more famous locations within Death Valley National Park. It’s also one of the most popular spots for photographers, who look to create images of the distinctive honeycomb patterns that form in the salt flats. But it’s also a challenging environment. Badwater Basin sits at the lowest land elevation in North America (282 feet below sea level) and in 1913 was home to the highest air temperature (134 degrees Fahrenheit) ever recorded on earth.
