There was a fantastic wildflower bloom in Death Valley this spring. It wasn't the most spectacular one I've seen, but it was close. In the valley proper, the floor was a blanket of these yellow flowers - literally millions of them. Fun to see, but it was hard (for me) to photograph and to capture the splendor of the view. There will be more views coming.

Meadowmom had posted the wildflower forecast on her page, and I desperately tried to figure out a way to get out there, but it just wouldn't work out. This looks beautiful, though. So maybe next time.

Clint, there is a pretty good bloom most every year - you just have to look for it. It's usually up at higher elevations beginnning around mid-March.
