May 15, 2012. The Hawthornes Drive To And Through Death Valley.

Join the Hawthornes as we drive through Death Valley,
a below-sea-level basin with record summer high temperatures.
It is one of the hottest, driest spots in the world,
experiencing a record temperature of 134 degrees.
Summer temperatures in the 110s and 120s are the norm.
The average yearly rainfall is less than 2 inches;
in some years there has been no measurable rainfall at all.
