Each program’s content is enhanced by geologic maps, photos, and Google Earth imagery. Session Information Death Valley, California Death Valley National Park was established in 1994 because of its tremendous diversity of geologic features, stunning desert vistas, and unique Mojave desert ecosystems. Kirt Kempter offers a geologic tour of the park, including ancient 1.8 billion-year-old rocks in the Black Mountains, volcanic craters and deposits formed just 2,000 years ago, and world-class examples of alluvial fan and playa deposits. The lowest point in North America occurs in the park at Badwater Basin, 282 feet below sea level. The park includes classic basin and range geology, a relatively young chapter in Death Valley’s complex and lengthy geologic story.
