Park Rangers in Death Valley Want You to Stop Trying to Fry Eggs on the Pavement

Temperatures in Death Valley National Park reached 126 degrees last week and have been over 120 on several days this summer.

If you’re thinking that that’s probably hot enough to fry an egg on the pavement…you’re WRONG.  And the park rangers there would like people to stop trying.

Apparently a lot of tourists have had that idea in the past week and they’re leaving behind a MESS when the eggs don’t fry.

Obviously the rangers don’t want to clean up shells and cartons from the parking lots, and the un-fried eggs ROT and SMELL.  Not to mention the rangers are short-staffed due to budget cuts.

But it’s partly their own fault.  A park employee put up a video on YouTube showing an egg frying in 127-degree weather…but it was in a pan.
