Lake Manly, a saltwater lake, is currently one of the most distinctive geological features of Death Valley National Park. Last appearing in 2005 and now back after historic rainfall in the fall of 2023, it is situated at the lowest point of the park and is a remnant of a vast ancient lake that once existed in the area. Despite its unusual brackish waters, which are four times saltier than the ocean, Lake Manly is home to a variety of unique species that have adapted to its harsh environment, such as the pupfish, a small fish found only in a few locations in the American West.
