Death Valley Superbloom 2016
Jay and Jude took a (very long) single-day trip to the Mojave Desert and Death Valley to see the “superbloom”. It was amazing. This was Jude’s first time to Death Valley, and Jay was last there when he was a Boy Scout.

The desert landscape was stark and geologic, the earth-tone colors of grey and brown, red, black, and white. In the areas of the superbloom, there was a hazy yellow overlay in the washes and alluvial fans. When we got close, the land was dotted with desert sunflowers, bright palm-sized flowers suspended 2-3 feet above the ground on wiry stems.
