A spring in this part of Saline Valley provides enough water for some plants to
survive. The salt flats in front of the distant mountains remind you that you are
far from out of the desert yet. Despite being about 1000 feet higher than Death
Valley, Saline Valley (still inside the park) is surrounded by high mountains on all four
sides, instead of just the east and west, allowing it to be as hot as Death Valley.
