Death Valley National Park has got a lot of “est” to it’s name. Confused? Don’t be, it’s one of the dri-est, the hott-est and the low-est places on earth. Basically, the basin is below sea level yet there’s very little or no water. It certainly is a land of extremes – winter snow glistens on the towering peaks, rainstorms are rare but when they do come they bring with them a carpet of wildflowers, tiny fish cling to life in the lush oases. Okay, so it might be called Death Valley National Park but there’s a lot of life going on there!
