Furnace Creek airport is an airport with the lowest elevation – some 210 feet below sea level. At the same time it is probably an airport with the highest temperature – when we landed here the temperature was about 53 degrees Celcius.

I had Furnace Creek airport on my wish list of airports to land for a long time. However, after we landed we were only able to spend there some 4-5 minutes.

The departure was very slow as the engine was somewhat lazy in that heat so our climb could be measured in tens of feet per minute rather than hundreds of feet per minute. Other than that, the surrounding area is beautiful as displays many colours proving that the area is rich in minerals.
