Geocache Description:

Located at a favorite Death Valley destination. Death Valley is one of my favorite places to visit. It's so peaceful here! This of course, is a National Park, so no real caches are allowed here. This virtual one will lead you to a popular spot for tourists. Hope you enjoy visiting the magical place as much as I do.

Thanks to all who visit! I truly enjoy reading the logs and see where everyone is from. I especially like reading the logs by folks from other countries.

Ok, here's how you get "finders" credit. Below are three (3) questions you must find the answers to on the interpretive signs and email those answers to me.

You won't receive an email back from me unless there is something is wrong with your answers. Have fun!

1: Besides sodium chloride, what other evaporative minerals are found at Badwater?
2: During what time period was the black and white photo taken posted on one of the interpretive signs here?
3: What is the rare creature that calls Badwater home?

PLEASE NO CHEATING! If I feel you "armchair cached" this find, your log will be deleted. And I won't honor requests of "I visited here but didn't know there was a cache, can I still get credit??" The answer is NO.

And don't bother trying to look up the answers online. You might find answers to question 1 & 3, but can only answer question 2 if you were physically there and read the signs. I won't take excuses of "oh, they must have removed/changed the sign" etc.

If you're going to cheat, don't play the game. You just ruin it for everyone else. There... that's my 2 cents :)
