After months of closure, visitors to Death Valley national park are being greeted by stunning new features, including lakes left behind by a ferocious summer deluge. The park reopened last week after being shuttered in August, when a record-breaking tropical storm unleashed a year’s worth of rain in a single day. Dramatic images emerging from the park show arid dunes now dotted with lakes. … The floodwaters have transformed the famous Badwater Basin salt flats, which are now covered in shimmering water believed to be about 2ft deep. … While the park is experiencing its wettest moment in close to two decades, the waters won’t last long.
