On our adventure this last year we passed through Death Valley. What a spectacular sight and a far cry from my home in Alaska. We went through in February so there was no record breaking heat but ended having a crazy time anyway when our car broke down at this little stop on the north west side of the park Thankfully the park rangers are awesome and helped make sure we got safely to a place for the night. Anyway this place was amazing and a very cool thing to check out in Death Valley. It is in the middle of nowhere and is a great place to stop and stretch your legs.
