That temp was probably taken at Furnice Creek, or maybe Badwater, which are both in the California part of the park. But Death Valley is officially in both states so we claim it too.

Did you know that people run from one end of DV to the other in summer? I believe it's 180 miles.

I doubt, therefore I might not be.

I have mostly avoided DV in summer my whole life except for driving through to get to the 'Sahara' Mountains on the other side a couple of times; so the only time I ever felt that much heat was working in the "hot-end" at the Hazel Atlas Glass Factory in Clarksburg, WV.



(Yes I know it's Sierra and you wouldn't say Sierra Mountains as that's from the Dept. of Redundancy Dept.)
