Death Valley was named during the 1849 California Gold Rush when 13 prospectors perished trying to cross on their way to the gold fields. Later, in 1913, a temperature of 134 °F was recorded in Death Valley, the highest ambient air temperature ever on the surface of the earth. This Army Map Services topographic map dates back to 1954, laying out the federally protected region 50 years before it was redesignated as a National Park and expanded in 1994. Printed on Lustre photographic paper, each high-quality chromogenic print uses traditional color photography development that combines 3-dimensional data with paper maps for a vibrant, textured 2D image that pops off the page.
