This Traveltalks visit to California's Death Valley begins at Badwater, a small salt lake that is 282 feet below sea level, the lowest point in North America. We then travel by car to the resort at Furnace Creek, where many tourists are seen using the facility's swimming pool. We are then taken to Ryan, a mining town that flourished in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries because of its borax deposits. It is now a tourist resort where visitors can see the sights in Death Valley by riding the railroad that originally transported the borax. The last four minutes showcase the estate known as Scotty's Castle, the home of Walter Scott, known as Death Valley Scotty, and his benefactor, Albert Johnson. Narrator James A. FitzPatrick is seen arriving at the estate by car with two female companions. He introduces us to Scott and Johnson.
