What keeps Death Valley so dry?



  1. 0 Votes

    Death Valley is a perfect storm of conditions that leads to it being so hot. One, it is in the middle of the Mojave Desert in the American Southwest. It is also the lowest point on the continent at more than 280 feet below sea level. Lastly, the entire valley is surrounded by large peeks on all sides, that trap in heat and block out the wind. This low lying corridor is an open, dry abyss which has been known to reach temperatures exceeding 130 degrees.
