After working the past year in Grand Canyon National Park I decided to spend this winter in Death Valley National Park. I am working at the Furnace Creek Inn, another facility operated by Xanterra Parks & Resorts. Like Grand Canyon this is a place I have never visited before. Between now and my departure next May I will be adding photos to this album. So drop by this album as I visit the sites of the lowest point in the Western hemisphere, Death Valley.

Furnace Creek Inn
The Furnace Creek Inn was builty by the US Borax Company in hopes of creating a tourist business to enhance their revenues. It opened in the winter of 1927 but construction continued for nearly ten years before all sections of the current structure were complete.
