"Bloom Where You Are Planted, Death Valley"

What draws us into the desert is the search for something intimate in the remote - Edward Abbey

The phenomenon is so rare that most people never see it, and I was super blessed to witness it. In a spectacular event nicknamed a “super bloom” (last seen in 2005) carpets of wildflowers are sweeping across the hills, badlands, and washes of Death Valley National Park. It’s very rare to have a good bloom in Death Valley and rain is key. With last fall’s flood-inducing downpours thanks to El Niño, proved essential to this year’s epic spectacle. We drove around for hours and it seemed as if Death Valley was alive with all of the colors as it was amazing to witness.
