Additional Details:
Death Valley, California, is over 200 feet below sea level. In summer the thermometer registers 140 degrees in the shade. It is at once the lowest and hottest place on earth. It received its name in 1850 through the destruction of a party of emigrants, who were attempting to cross its arid waters. It is chiefly noted for its large deposits of crude borax
