    Sergiuz's General Tip

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: the most persistent memory i have of the lower basin in the Valley - besides Badwater, in other words - is the hot, steady wind blowind upon our faces,...it was just like having a giant hair-drier placed in front of us:)) I can say, in addition, that i really don't know how high the temperature was there on the day we visited, but it was pretty unbearable despite our smiling faces in the picture...



    Below are the current weather conditions in Bishop,CA, located just a few miles outside the north-west border of Death Valley (see the following map, under 'transportation' chapter, for details).

    Fondest memory: What apparently seems water from above is just an optical illusion... if fact, most of the surface water in Death Valley is in saline ponds and marshes around the salt pan. Most of the year the bed of the Amargosa River is just a series of dry channels, also because most of its flow is underground.

    Fondest memory: This sign-board (click on the picture to read it), located besides one of the sightseeing points, is pretty explanatory about Death Valley's geological origin and gives reason of the particular shape of the surrounding rocks.
