Death Valley, a rare lake comes alive

Badwater Basin normally consists of hard-packed earth covered in what is essentially table salt, left behind by water that coursed down from adjacent mountains and hillsides over millenniums and evaporated in the scorching heat. But when Death Valley reopened this fall, visitors were greeted by a miraculous sight: a mirror-smooth body of water. It was the first time a lake had formed here in nearly 20 years the last time was during the winter of 2005 and this one is substantially larger.


Took these photos when I was there:

Must be cool with a lake in the middle of the desert.

Yeah Furnace Creek, Gorda, and Ragged Point are typically the three most expensive places to fuel up in the United States. They've been as high as $10 per gallon.
