And the answer is................ e) California and Nevada

Death Valley National Park is an American national park that straddles the California—Nevada border, east of the Sierra Nevada. The park boundaries include Death Valley, the northern section of Panamint Valley, the southern section of Eureka Valley, and most of Saline Valley. The park occupies an interface zone between the arid Great Basin and Mojave deserts, protecting the northwest corner of the Mojave Desert and its diverse environment of salt-flats, sand dunes, badlands, valleys, canyons, and mountains. Death Valley is the largest national park in the contiguous United States, and the hottest, driest and lowest of all the national parks in the United States. The second-lowest point in the Western Hemisphere is in Badwater Basin, which is 282 feet (86 m) below sea level. Approximately 91% of the park is a designated wilderness area. The park is home to many species of plants and animals that have adapted to this harsh desert environment. Some examples include creosote bush, bighorn sheep, coyote, and the Death Valley pupfish, a survivor from much wetter times. UNESCO included Death Valley as the principal feature of its Mojave and Colorado Deserts Biosphere Reserve in 1984.
A series of Native American groups inhabited the area from as early as 7000 BC, most recently the Timbisha around 1000 AD who migrated between winter camps in the valleys and summer grounds in the mountains. A group of European-Americans, trapped in the valley in 1849 while looking for a shortcut to the gold fields of California, gave the valley its name, even though only one of their group died there. Several short-lived boom towns sprang up during the late 19th and early 20th centuries to mine gold and silver. The only long-term profitable ore to be mined was borax, which was transported out of the valley with twenty-mule teams. The valley later became the subject of books, radio programs, television series, and movies. Tourism expanded in the 1920s when resorts were built around Stovepipe Wells and Furnace Creek. Death Valley National Monument was declared in 1933 and the park was substantially expanded and became a national park in 1994.
The natural environment of the area has been shaped largely by its geology. The valley is actually a graben with the oldest rocks being extensively metamorphosed and at least 1.7 billion years old. Ancient, warm, shallow seas deposited marine sediments until rifting opened the Pacific Ocean. Additional sedimentation occurred until a subduction zone formed off the coast. The subduction uplifted the region out of the sea and created a line of volcanoes. Later the crust started to pull apart, creating the current Basin and Range landform. Valleys filled with sediment and, during the wet times of glacial periods, with lakes, such as Lake Manly.
In 2013, Death Valley National Park was designated as a dark sky park by the International Dark-Sky Association.

Oops, I tried to give States with borders! (I blame Google!)

Well done, in advance :))

Struggled between two answers and finally looked it up. It was one of my two choices. lol Thanks, Bonnie.

You’ve made your point :-)

Max_Tooney

The common border between Arizona and Colorado is actually any infinitely small POINT--as their common 'border' is part of the four corners--AZ, NM, CO, UT. There is no overlapping border between these two states--just a common point.

The other five answers have states with rather lengthy borders.

Juba1010

They share a river.

Max_Tooney

Does anyone have any trivia they want to share regarding selection d) ? Specifically: how does selection d) differ from the others.

(Not related to the answer of the puzzle, and not related in any manner to c) profit.)

Juba1010

LOL

Max_Tooney

Haha, yeah. I thrive on long drives, though. I do some of my best sleeping while behind the wheel.

Juba1010

It’s a long drive Max. Stay inside and have some hot chocolate.

Max_Tooney

Hmmm, should I select 67 and sunny--or be content with my cold, dismal, depressing rainfall today? Decisions, decisions!

Juba1010

High today of 67F ,low 39F :-)

Surreal_Heidi

I do believe I know this!

If you want to survive Death Valley, you sure need a good Health Center!!

SPaceDinVADerOne

waits for my next point ;o)

"It's 120°!!"

"But it's a 'dry' heat."

"an oven's dry heat too yanno"

Max_Tooney

Gotcha. I've never visited there, but the thought of hot, dry weather sure makes me want to smile :-)

The grass may be greener on the other side but at least you don't have to mow it.
