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.
