Tourists still flock to Death Valley amid scorching heat | News

DEATH VALLEY — Hundreds of Western Europeans and adventurers from across the United States continue to flock to Death Valley National Park, even as the desolate region known as one of the hottest places on Earth endures a dangerous heat wave that killed a motorcyclist last weekend.

Tourists from France, Spain, England and Switzerland left their air-conditioned cars this week to snap photos of the barren landscape, so different from the snowy mountains and rolling green hills they know from home. American adventurers embraced the novelty, even as officials at the California park warned visitors to stay safe.
