Death Valley National Park, California, USA

Here a few photos taken by us at Death Valley NP, a few hundred km north-east of Los Angeles. This park features a saltpan, part of which is the lowest point on the north-American continent. In addition there are interesting rock formations and typical, arid desert country. Death Valley is renowned for the extreme heat in summer. Visitors should consult first with the National Park Service, if heading out during summer.
