The lowest point in North America and the final destination of hydrologic drainage for 184,427 square miles of the Great Basin, the largest endorheic watershed in North America.
I try to make a trip here at least every year. It's one of those places where you can go and just feel that it is somewhere special, almost powerful. The combination of isolation, silence, and endless sun is profound.
The Mesquite Flat Dunes inside of Death Valley near Stovepipe wells as the shadows start to lengthen before sunset.
The sun actually feels this size when you're in Death Valley some how.
The Sea Level marker at Stovepipe Wells. This is right across the street from the gas station/gift shop and an awesome little hotel with a bar and restaurant.
These dunes are pretty big.
Badwater Basin is the lowest point in North America, and all of the water for hundreds of miles around drains here and dries up just leaving the salt it has accumulated during the trip.
