Rock Bottom at Badwater Basin

October 8th, 2020

We’re standing at rock bottom — 282 feet/85 meters below sea level at Badwater Basin in Death Valley. Badwater marks the lowest point in North America. A wide and salty trail leads out to the basin but the heat of the morning, even in October, keeps us from straying too far.

We follow this with the Artist’s Trail and a stop at Zabriski Point before driving six hours to our grand destination. Guess where we are tonight?

Tomorrow is a big day. Starting early, hiking long and counting high.

See you after sunset!
