  Death Valley Travel Tip

Death Valley, named Tomesha "Ground Afire" by the Panamint Indians, is the hottest place in the United States. The average July temperature is a mild 116 degrees Fahrenheit with an occasional high of 134. A mind-boggling 201 degrees ground temperature was recorded July 15, 1972. Ground afire, to be sure.

The park is open year-round. However, zipping down the valley on a warm summer day without lots of extra water for you and for your car is definitely foolhardy and life-threatening. If you"re going to try it in the summer, night travel is best; and even then with lots of extra water.
