In this week’s show, we look at one of the hottest places on Earth, Death Valley National Park in southeastern California and western Nevada. And this summer was especially hot. The park broke records in a number of categories as it experienced some of the hottest days ever recorded on Earth.  

August was particularly brutal, with record temperatures reached 12 times for both the daily high and the daily low.  To take a closer look at these numbers and why they don’t seem to be a deterrent to visitors, Traveler’s Lynn Riddick spoke with Death Valley Superintendent Mike Reynolds.
