Death Valley of America

It is so hot in America's Death Valley that even eggs burn on the ground! Yes, on July 10, 1913, the temperature there was recorded at 56.7 degrees Celsius, which is the highest temperature ever recorded on earth. Now Death Valley has become famous not only for its heat but also for visiting. The amazing views created due to the special weather there are worth seeing, such as “Bad Water” where a white sheet of salt is spread on the ground and then “moving single stones” are also seen there, which is really a strange sight.
