Sun Shines Everywhere 1060

Death Valley Daze: Badwater Basin, the lowest spot in North America, was a cool 107 degrees in this picture. The accumulated salts of the surrounding area make the water undrinkable. The old salt reading the Alameda Sun is Jan Sutter. Park rangers recommended a colorful day-glow shirt so he could be found in the event of spontaneous combustion or total evaporation.
