Death Valley


Sizes Available: 24″ x 18″

Open Edition

“Death Valley” may seem like an obvious name for the hottest, driest location in North America—a place where, some years, no rain falls at all and where the temperature can reach 134°F.  The name does, however, arise from a specific incident in which hundreds of ‘49ers became stranded there while looking for a shortcut to California’s gold mines.  When the surviving members were rescued, one prospector looked back and said, “So long, Death Valley.”
