This is another of the most famous locations to visit within Death Valley National Park. It is the lowest point in the valley, in the US and world above land. This low salty pool is i believe the most visited, it was evident in the number of people there and statistics of visitors to the park annually.

Like the dead sea is the lowest point in water, death Valley is the lowest point on land. It is so surreal, but I would not advise touching or walking in the water. the information I gathered is that in the rainy season, it does fill up a bit, but dries out quickly due to the ensuing heat.

It was completely dry, we did not get out of the car because the heat was rather scorching by the time we got here
