The USA has the most beautiful landscapes and much variation. Not just the highest point in North America is a very interesting place, also the lowest point. This area is called Badwater, and is near the lowest point in Death Valley as noted by Wikipedia:
“Badwater is a basin in California’s Death Valley, noted as the lowest point in North America, with an elevation of 282 feet (86 m) below sea level.
The site itself consists of a small spring-fed pool of water next to the road; however, the accumulated salts of the surrounding basin make it undrinkable, thus the name “Badwater”. The pool does have animal and plant life, including pickleweed, aquatic insects, and the Badwater Snail. The pool is not actually the lowest point of the basin, which is several miles to the west and varies in position. However, the salt flats are hazardous to traverse (in many cases being only a thin white crust over mud), and so the sign is at the pool.
Badwater is the starting point of the Badwater Ultramarathon, which ends high on Mount Whitney, 85 miles (137 kilometers) to the west..
