The Hottest Place on Earth

Desert sun overhead, volcanic forces beneath your feet, and the average year-round temperature is 94F (34C)! This is Danakil Depression in Ethiopia, where the ground springs forth with lava and hot mineral springs that evaporate and leave salt formations behind. See a collection of beautiful and foreboding photographs of the region at Environmental Graffiti. Link
