On July 10, Death Valley will be celebrating 100 years since breaking the world record for the hottest temperature recorded.
In 1913, Death Valley warmed up to a high of 134ºF, this makes it the hottest place on Earth. It is known that Death Valley is the hottest place in North America but also the driest and lowest place in the continent. On average, the valley gets about 2 inches of rainfall in a year, and it is usually the month of February that brings the most precipitation. As far as the lowest point goes, it is Badwater Basin lying way below sea level, 282 feet below sea level that is!
