Death Valley. There are few places on earth that showcase the extreme nature of this national park. It is North America's driest and hottest spot, receiving an average of less than 3 inches of rain annually, and holds the record high of 134 F.
It's a desolate land of sand dunes, salt flats, sun-baked mountains, moving rocks, canyons and some amazing desert plants and animals.
