Salt Bergs in the Desert

DEATH VALLEY, CA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: The basin at Badwater, in Death Valley National Park. The elevation here is -282 feet, the lowest spot in North America. The "badwater" is very salty, with no drainage, only evaporation, since it is so far below sea level. Thus, the little "bergs" floating in the water are all SALT, but they sure look like much more familiar ice. No ice during our visit, as it was close to 90 degrees, but in the summer can easily climb to 115-120, or more.

My husband and I, along with our four kids in college and beyond live in western Washington, but we like to venture further afield when time permits. We have enjoyed photography wherever we have gone and hope to add a little new perspective to any who may stop by to enjoy a bit of our journeys. We appreciate your interest and comments! Weather is also a passion of mine, so please drop by my blog for my musings about our weather here in the Puget Sound region!
