Photo of Pink Sunrise on Telescope Peak over Badwater

I’ve been on a few deep scuba dives in my life but relative to sea level this is as deep as I have ever been, and I didn’t even need to strap on a scuba tank to get there. Seen here is delicate pre-dawn pink light on a snow covered Telescope Peak, viewed from Badwater. Telescope Peak, at 11,049 feet, is the highest point in Death Valley National Park as well as the Panamint Range. Badwater is the lowest point in Death Valley National Park, at 282 feet below sea level.
