Walking 282 Feet Below Sea Level

Death Valley -- Bad Water Basin is the lowest point in North America. A few hours drive to the West stands the highest point in the lower 48 States. It is the starting point of the Badwater 135, taking athletes from Bad Water 135 miles to Mt. Whitney at over 14,000 ft. Next year, however, Death Valley National Park put a moratorium on foot and cycling races through the desert until they can find a way to make it safer.
