What is Death Valley National Park
Death Valley National Park is a United States National Park that is located in the Southern California Desert and in Nevada. Many travelers overlook the park due to the misguided belief that it is simply a lifeless, empty landscape, but this 3.4 million acre (14,000 km2) park is not only the largest park in the continental USA but arguably one of the most striking specimens of Mother Earth. Nearly every major geological era is elegantly exposed here in what sometimes appears to be one of her greatest tapestries, gloriously presenting her full spectrum.

"In 1881 Harmony Borax Works (near Furnace Creek), which is now partly restored and open to visitors, came into operation; others followed and the quantities of borax, which is still mined to some extent in Death Valley today, increased within a few years to hundreds of thousands of tons."
"The topography here is extreme; whereas Death Valley drops to almost 300 feet below sea level and contains the lowest (and hottest) spot in the Western Hemisphere, the Mojave Desert, which lies to the south, has elevations ranging from 3,000 to 5,000 feet."
"Congress passed the Mining in the Parks Act in 1976 which closed Death Valley National Monument to the filing of new mining claims, banned open-pit mining and required the National Park Service to examine the validity of tens of thousands of pre-1976 mining claims."
"Death Valley prospectors called borax "white gold," and though it wasn't exactly a glamorous substance, it was a profitable one."

When you visit the park, make sure to stop by and see Scotty's Castle. It is a very interesting place with a great story. It will take a good 2-3 hours to check out the whole place. I visited Death Valley in mid November and the temp was perfect.
