Nighttime temperatures in the high 90s, dusty and dry ground beneath my feet and the bright amazing stars above my head. It doesn’t get any better than that.
Here I was in the middle of summer in the one of the hottest places on earth – Badwater Basin. Sitting 282 feet below sea level – the temperatures here can be BRUTAL and while I didn’t experience 110 degrees (I left before midday) the temps here have reached over 130 degrees in the past.
I could type out a bunch of really interesting facts but this website – which describes the world’s most extreme places – does a pretty good job of that
