|Today we went exploring in Death Valley National Park.It covers 3 million acres and is the hottest, driest and lowest of our national parks.It holds the record for the hottest air temp at 124 degrees. Average rain fall is less than 2 inches with some years of 0 rain.Badwater basin in the heart of the valley is 282 ft below sea level- the lowest point in North America. The weather today was 68 and mostly sunny,wonderful for hiking! We took our truck thru a rugged,beautiful back country drive called Titus Canyon-taking almost 4 hours. I took so many pictures today it's hard to only pick out a few. The natural beauty of this place is amazing.Tomorrow going back to see more.
