Hello, Johnny Thunder here. Welcome to my travel journal. You may have seen me and my friends in some of our other adventures. From Egypt to Asia; from the Lost World to the Amazon; we've been everywhere. Now, however, I would like to extend an invitation to join me on a tour through the real world.

Death Valley

Springtime took us to the lowest and hottest spot in the Western Hemisphere: Death Valley. At 282 feet below sea level, Badwater Basin is the 2nd lowest spot in the world. A small saltwater pool sits surrounded by the salt flats left over from the evaporated lake. Elsewhere in the park are vast sand dunes and colorful badlands. After leaving the national park, we made a quick stop, a short distance outside the valley, at the ghost town of Rhyolite.
