We drive to the hottest and lowest place in North America. Death Valley's Badwater Basin is the point of the lowest elevation in North America, at 282 feet (86 m) below sea level, while Furnace Creek in Death Valley, California, the hottest place in North America. In case you're keeping count, we've been to the most Northern, Western, Southern, hottest and lowest places in NA. So we got that going for us. There is an old abandoned RV park called Pad City which is a nice, free and creepy place to stay. Had a great time driving through the park and learning about its history. P.S. Bring water.
