데스밸리는 말그대로 죽음의 계곡. 라스베이거스에서 북쪽으로 2.5시간 정도 걸린다. 여름에는 가능하면 가지 않는 게 좋다. 한낮에는 대부분 40도 이상 올라간다.

데스밸리에서 낮은 계곡 부분을 보면 하얀색이 반사되어 물처럼 보이지만, 이 사진처럼 물이 아닌 소금덩어리이다. 맛을 보면 약간 짠맛이 느껴지는 정도.

예전 황금을 찾아 서부로 이동하던 마차들이 물을 발견했다고 기뻐하다가 이 소금덩어리를 보고 실망했다고 Bad Water라고 이름을 붙였다고 한다.

This panorama was taken in California, USA

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
