Death Valley is a hot mess.

After a Death Valley National Park employee posted a video of an egg being cooked in the desert sun, the park is now littered with egg shells and cartons from visitors attempting the stunt themselves.

It's gotten so bad, that Death Valley National Park has made a public plea on their Facebook page asking visitors to stop frying eggs on the ground.

Their Facebook post reads:

"An employee's posting of frying an egg in a pan in Death Valley was intended to demonstrate how hot it can get here, with the recommendation that if you do this, use a pan or tin foil and properly dispose of the contents. However, the Death Valley NP maintenance crew has been busy cleaning up eggs cracked directly on the sidewalk, including egg cartons and shells strewn across the parking lot.

This is your national park, please put trash in the garbage or recycle bins provided and don't crack eggs on the sidewalks ..."
