A series of unusual storms in October caused large amounts of damage throughout Death Valley National Park. Flash floods destroyed significant portions of multiple roads and heavily damaged several historic structures at Scotty's Castle and deposited debris in Devils Hole.

Watch this inaugural episode of the "Death Valley Exposed" video podcast series and see some of the destruction and rebirth the recent storms have brought to Death Valley.

If you'd like to help with the restoration efforts you can contribute directly to the Scotty's Castle Preservation Fund or Adopt-a-Room. DVNHA will be working very closely with Death Valley National Park to help keep this amazing national treasure alive into the future. Learn more at: http://dvnha.org

Death Valley Exposed is a video podcast series that highlights various snapshots from Death Valley National Park. Produced by the National Park Service in association with Bristlecone Media and Death Valley Natural History Association, an official nonprofit partner of Death Valley National Park. Funding for the series has been provided by a grant from Rio Tinto.

That final shot from Dante's View is insane. It always intrigued me how the biggest dangers in the desert are such polar opposites: extreme heat and flash flooding.
