I should really look up the history of death valley, it sounds 'omnious' as if one shouldn't go there(!)
Stephen, it is very unusual and presents some great opportunities for photographers. However, it is has the lowest point in North America and is not really where you want to be during our summer months. Apparently, in July of 2018 it averaged 108 degrees for the month with daytime highs reaching 127 degrees four days in a row.

I visited DVNP on a summer day two years ago on the way to the eastern sierras. The high was 123 F or thereabouts. It was so hot that 1) when I hiked, I didn’t sweat because it evaporated immediately; 2) the cold water at Furnace Creek was so hot that taking a shower was extremely challenging as it was way too hot; and 3) the AC only managed to get the room temperature in the cabin down to about 90-95 degrees.
