Extractions: Weather Maps DV Reports Death Valley National Park is located on the eastern border of south-central California and includes a small area of Nevada. Running more than 50 miles southwest-to-northeast and more than 150 miles northwest-to-southeast, it is the largest national park in the contiguous U.S. Ecologically, its plants and animals of are representative of the Mojave Desert; geologists consider it to be located in the southeastern Great Basin Desert. Death Valley itself is a large desert trough nearly surrounded by mountains. It is nestled between the Amargosa Range on the east which includes the Black, the Funeral and the Grapevine Mountains and the Panamint Range on the west which includes the Cottonwood Mountains. The Owlshead Mountains rise at the south end of the park and the Sylvania Mountains border the northern end. It contains the lowest point in the western hemisphere 282 feet below sea level near Badwater as well as numerous high-rising mountain peaks, including Telescope Peak at over 11,000 feet. Death Valley was named by gold-seekers, some of whom died crossing the valley during the 1849 California gold rush. (PDF is an acronym for "Portable Document Format."
