Geology : Death Valley

Death Valley Geology

The landscape is so varied and extreme, one cannot help to wonder what events have taken place to create such an environment. From Badwater, the lowest point in the western hemisphere at 282 feet below sea level, to the 11,049 foot high Telescope Peak, this rugged topography, as well as sand dunes, volcanic craters and flood-carved canyons indicate a lengthy and complex geologic history.
