Death Valley Trip – Furnace Creek

After visiting Badwater, my next stop was Furnace Creek. This ranch is located 58 m below sea level and has a population of 24.

A sign at the entrance showed that the temperature record was 134F (56.67C) on July 13th 1913. Being here in October, the temperature was around 90F.

The general store sold about anything, and the restaurant was really nice.General Store

I also took a walk through the mining museum, which holds a lot of old machinery from the mining days.Mining Museum Mining Museum Mining Museum Mining Museum

The last photo is of “Old Dinah” of 1894, which replaced the mules. Old Dinah
