Badwater

Badwater is the lowest elevation in the western hemisphere you can drive to. The actual lowest point, 282 feet below sea level is further out in the pan, several miles to the west. Dante's View is one mile away, straight up. The water has a definate odor to it. Brine flies, shrimp and several types of plants survive in this salty, alkaline environment.
