Don’t Drink the Water

Bad Water Basin is located in Death Valley National Park in southeaster California.  At 282 feet below sea level the basin is the lowest point in North America. At the other extreme, Mount Whitney, the highest altitude in the contiguous United States is only 85 miles to the northwest.  I wouldn’t drink the water though. There is an accumulation of salts that make the water undrinkable.
