Too Many Tourists Try to Fry Too Many Eggs on the Streets of Death Valley

So it’s been pretty darn hot this summer, and that’s especially the case in a spot that’s always sweltering—Death Valley, California. Plenty of visitors head through the area each and every day looking to check out the surroundings—and weather—but now there’s a polite request for those coming to visit to lay off the eggs.
Apparently the heat has caused quite the increase in visitors attempting to fry eggs on the sidewalks and in the roads, and officials are asking everyone to stop making a mess—or at least to bring a frying pan and to clean up the mess.
At Death Valley National Park, visitors are greeted with a mess of egg shells, egg cartons, and other egg-related trash and debris scattered about. Rangers wrote on the park’s Facebook page, kindly requesting visitors to stop trying to cook stuff on the ground.
If you’re visiting the area be sure to make sure the air conditioning in your car is in good working order and that you have plenty of water, and bring your own frying pan and, you know, some bacon.
