Stop Frying Eggs, Death Valley Officials Say

DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) — It gets so hot in Death Valley that you can fry an egg with sun power.

That’s what one Death Valley National Park employee did last week, when she took a frying pan to the pavement and posted the video online.

Park visitors were quick to imitate her, but they didn’t use skillets and left gooey messes. The park then issued a plea on its Facebook page to crack down on the egg-frying fiasco.

Death Valley highs have been hovering around 120 degrees, and on Wednesday the park marked the 100th anniversary of the world’s hottest day on record — 134 degrees — set there in 1913.

Park rangers say the egg frying has since stopped due to rain and clouds that have rolled across Death Valley.
