Nature On Film, A Photojournal by Bob Epperly
Death Valley is the largest of the national parks with 3.4 million acres or 1.5 times the area of the State of Delaware. Mountains surrounding the desert are as high as 11,000 feet, and the desert floor is as low as 282 feet below sea level. In summer the temperature frequently reaches 120 degrees F. With less than two inches of rain annually on average, Death Valley is a very dry area, but the geography, geology, and plant life vary widely depending on location and season. Its beauty is unique.
