Desert Early Bloom

Death Valley California

February 20. 2016

 

Botanists are expecting a possible wildflower "super bloom" in the next few weeks in the hottest and one of the driest places on earth -- Death Valley.

 

Recent rains and moderate temperatures have already brought the valley floor to life.

 

This capture was taken about 9 miles south of Badwater, the lowest point in the hemisphere at 282 feet below sea level.
