Photographer's Note

This is Badwater, the hottest place in the Death Valley. Located below the sea level, at the edge of a wide salt lake, it is the place where the hottest temperatures of the Northern hemisphere where ever recorded. (57 degrees in the shade, I think, but there is no natural shade !).
From the parking area you can walk to the core of the salted lake. It is a short walk, but it is a considerable effort due to the high temperature.
When I was there the hot wind was like a hair dryer on my face. You really need to drink a lot to prevent serious risks for your health.
