This was my third time driving through Death Valley and the hottest and driest that I had experienced. I remember walking to see if there was a shot at this tree and it felt like I was in an oven. The air was hot and dry which made breathing difficult and the short walk from the road seem more like a moderate hike. I think this tree is a great symbol of how extreme the conditions can be here in Death Valley.
