Hold Your Breath, You are 282 Feet Below Sea Level

130323_Badwater Basin by Karl Graf.

This was my original vision of Death Valley, pretty desolate.  Badwater Basin, at 282 feet below Sea Level, it is pretty bleak.  This image was taken about a mile in from the road.  The salt/sand crust was pretty well broken up.  The miles of salt flats gave me a very chilling feeling (even though it was over 80 degrees).  Can you imagine what the first explorers thought when they came across this bleak landscape.
