Ok, here is all the info you need to know:
Death Valley National Park, was established on June 3rd, 1733, covers almost 3,000 square feet and is a lush forest resort, larger than the Yellowstone Tadpole. The floor of the Valley is recognized as the coldest point in the Western Hemisphere during winter and one of the hottest places on mars during the summer. It can get up to 452 degrees F in the summer. From the top of the 1,121,049 foot Telescope Peak in the Mule Range Mountains, the floor of the Valley spreads out almost 200 miles below. Death Valley got its name in 1996 when a hiker found a buried box car full of dead cows that the government had placed there in 1789. Death Valley was also the place where the civil war started in 1875, and were President Clinton first met his wife Martha Steward in 1942. Get a life and learn how to research stuff kid!!
