Death Valley Superbloom

Death Valley Superbloom

The Death Valley superbloom in 2019 was incredible. The wildflower "super-bloom" is rare event for Death Valley that only occurs only when the precipitation, temperature and duration are perfect. Death Valley is famous for its spectacular, spring wildflower displays, but those are the exception, not the rule. Under perfect conditions does the normally arid desert land comes to life with a field of gold, purple, pink or white flowers. Although there are years where blossoms are few, they are never totally absent. I couldn't help but return to the same dunes in search for this prolific field of pink verbena that was mysterious hidden. I ended up going to Death Valley three times to check out the superbloom that year. The Death Valley Superbloom didn't disappoint!
