Badwater Basin is the lowest point in North America. My family briefly vacationed in Death Valley this week and although I didn't hike to it, I thought it belonged on the hiking blog for the negative elevation record. My GPS registered -289', while the official USGS measurement is -282'.

Coyote crossed over Badwater Road on the way to the basin.
He paused a little ways off the road to eat something.
