The raw starkness of the desert has an effect different from mountains, forests, rivers, and oceans.

Digging up world record hot temp

Post by Death Valley Dazed » Mon Dec 24, 2018 10:04 am

Hey, thanks for the link. It was a fun and informative read. BTW Two summers ago I was at the Visitor's Center when the temp sign at the entrance read 129 degrees. So just maybe, I know what the world record temp is? :roll:

The temperature sign at the Visitor's Center isn't accurate ... or where they take official readings. :smile:

Actually, here's another link I never knew about ... https://www.nps.gov/deva/learn/news/hot ... t-june.htm

Nice box!
