Death Valley National Park

As a kid I remember Death Valley being the birth place of The Undertaker from WWF. Now I see Death Valley as a nature amusement park. Similar to enjoying different roller coasters at an amusement park, Death Valley has many different places to stop and enjoy. Temperatures of 120° F in the summer describes very well why the park has its name. With too much to see in one trip, I will surely be making a return trip.

Snow on the mountain tops but no snow on the ground. All salt.
