The southwest is baking in the grips of a heatwave and on June 30 the temperature in Death Valley hit 129 degrees which, it seems difficult to believe, merely TIED the June record. The park has seen in influx of visitors wanting to be there for these record-setting–or record tying– days. With news stories about the extreme heat in Death Valley in the back of my mind, I came across this photo by Abe Blair. Blair submitted this image of Badwater in Death Valley to the Your Favorite Places gallery.
