Rangers order egg crackdown in Death Valley


Rangers in Death Valley, one of the hottest places in the world, are pleading with visitors to stop frying eggs on the national park’s scorching roads – it is making too much of a mess.

Officials for Death Valley, which straddles California and Nevada, wrote on Facebook that maintenance crews have been “busy cleaning up eggs cracked directly on the sidewalk, including egg cartons and shells strewn across the parking lot” and asked visitors to “use a pan or tin foil”.

Temperatures reached 53.3C in the valley in June.
