Flora in Death Valley


The google posts said it was hard to find flowers this year if you didn't go off road, but all of these photos were taken from a main road (or by walking a short distance into an adjacent area) in Death Valley.      Granted, there weren't many flowers if you used the main entrance and visited the popular areas.   We like to enter near Pahrump.     That choice of entry points paid off.

















RJ continues to be a good scout.      He found this incredible field of cacti.     It was very hard narrowing it down to just three pictures.


































Til next year........

After the Rain

My favorite time to go to Death Valley is a day or two after it rains.       The dust is washed off the rocks and you actually see puddles in the desert.












That's salt, not snow



This is one major "dip"






The Painters Palette area is one of my favorites






The Great Salt Flats.    Looks like a beach doesn't it?    No water here....



Another shot of the flats.    The desert can be so deceiving from above
