Having hiked Mount Whitney(the highest point in the continental US) the day before, on the way back to the VOS I figured that I'd stop off at Badwater Basin, the low point in the US. Actually, Badwater Basin is also the lowest point on land in the Western Hemisphere.

The trip involved a 34 mile RT detour off of Highway 190. At the parking lot there was a boardwalk that was all of about 50 yards long, so we walked to the end of the boardwalk, and continued a short distance on the salt flats. It was 110 degrees at 11:00 AM, and having done a strenuous hike the day before, we decided not to go exploring out on the salt flats on this trip.
