This week marked the return of Death Valley as having the nation's hottest temperatures. Although Death Valley regularly enjoys this distinction for weeks, if not months, at a time during the summer, in the winter the temperatures are not only mild, but quite pleasant. With yesterday's temperature reaching 103 F degrees, it looks like summer has made its way to Death Valley.
Visitors should consult the Morning Report prior to visiting Death Valley so they are aware of the temperatures, and to dress and pack accordingly. Remember to drink plenty of water during your visit!
