-Junior Editors Qui* on DEATH VALLEY 7 SWEETIE PIE By Madine Seltxer QUESTION. Where did Death Valley get its name? ANSWER: Death Valley is a small valley in the desert of cen tral California, near the border of Nevada. It is 125 miles long and 25 to 35 miles wide. The valley is surrounded by volcanic mountains, with Telescope Peak—the highest—reaching upward more than two miles above sea level. Yet the valley at one spot it 281 feet below sea level. There is very little vegetation and not much animal life because there is almost no water. The mountains shut out the cooling winds and in summer the temperature often reaches 125 degrees. More than 100 years ago 18 prospectors out of a group of 30 died of thirst while crossing the valley. The 12 men who survived gave the valley its name. FOR YOU TO DO: While Death Valley is a fearsome place, it has many riches beneath its surface. Find out what they are in a geography book or encyclopedia. (Moana Tseu of Oahu, Hawaii, wins the $10 for this question. Send your question on a postcard to Violet Moore Higgins, AP Newsfeatures, in care of this newspaper.
