NASA description

Death Valley, the lowest point in the United States at 282 feet (86 meters) below sea level, is the white area at the northern end of this graben. In contrast, the brown Panamint Mountains that border Death Valley on the west have a series of ridge lines that exceed 7000 feet (2135 meters) and a maximum peak of 11 048 feet (3365 meters). A series of alluvial fans flanks the Panamints’ eastern side, and an elongated, tan, dry lakebed lies just west of the mountain range.
