|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Death Valley National Park is located east of the Sierras in the states of California and Nevada. We visited this area on May 14 in 2001. Death Valley is known for its driest and hottest spot in North America and for and the lowest point on the continent—282 feet below sea level.
We have also visited Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge near the southeast entrance to the park where we hiked to Crystal Springs and Devil's Hole, a flooded cave entrance which provides habitat for an endangered species of pupfish.
