Death Valley Was Established in the year 1933. The park protects the northwest corner of the Mojave Desert and contains a diverse desert environment of salt-flats, sand dunes, badlands, valleys, canyons, and mountains. It is the largest national park in the lower 48 states and has been declared an International Biosphere Reserve. Approximately 95% of the park is a designated wilderness area. In the year of 1939 a Millionaire couple had friend named Scotty. They had a castle built in the top left hand corner of Death Valley for him. Inside there various artifacts, pieces of furniture, and other objects that, are in surprisingly good condition for their age. If you go their today you can take a tour with a Death Valley park ranger in 1939 ranger uniform. Believe it or not, Death Valley is home to many creatures. Some of these include Roadrunner, Chuckwalla, and even Scorpions. Most animals that live in these environments have to be able to survive long times rain, or water for that matter, and the extreme heat as well. Many people already know that Death Valley is very dry, very hot, and very sandy. It might by dry, cracking, and sandy, but it has some neat geography. For example, Grapewine Canyon is a known canyon at the top of Death Valley. Amazing hieroglyphics that have been engraved on rocks draw tourists. Every once in a while sand storms blow around and can be (deadly). Also the info I have says something about “Light Pollution” as well. Over all, though, Death Valley is a very environmentally friendly place. Death Valleyis still open today. In the way of technology they use cars (of course) to get around. They don’t need much light because the sun supplies most of that. However, Death Valley isn’t what a regular person would consider “old”. It’s just very environmentally friendly.
