Despite the punishing heat wave in Death Valley National Park, European tourists and American adventurers are still making their way to the desolate region, eager to experience the novelty of the barren landscape and extreme temperatures. Visitors from countries like France, Spain, England, and Switzerland have left behind their air-conditioned vehicles to take in the unique surroundings that differ greatly from the snowy mountains and green hills of their homelands. Meanwhile, American travelers like Drew Belt from Mississippi see the opportunity to visit Death Valley as a once-in-a-lifetime experience, likening it to walking on Mars.

The high heat wave affecting Death Valley is part of a larger weather pattern gripping the Western United States, with record daily high temperatures reported in Oregon and millions of people across the country under heat alerts. The extreme heat has also led to suspected heat-related deaths, including four in Oregon's Multnomah County, where temperatures have soared and broken records over the weekend. The global temperature continues to rise, with June marking the 13th consecutive month of record warmth, emphasizing the urgent need for climate action.

In Death Valley, temperatures reached a staggering 128°F over the weekend, leading to the death of a visitor due to heat exposure. Emergency response was hampered by the extreme conditions, with medical helicopters unable to fly safely over 120°F. The park, known for its extreme environment and record-breaking temperatures, is facing even more extreme highs in the upcoming days, posing serious health risks to visitors.
