In Death Valley among Desert Gold
In Spring of 2005 record rainfall and ideal temperatures produced an enormous display of wildflowers in the Death Valley- one of the hottest and driest landscapes in the Western hemisphere.
These seeds of Desert Sunflowers lay dormant for decades before blooming.

It was spectacular. I'm glad I had a chance to visit during that time.

Thank you. No, it was just a day trip. We are about a two-hour drive from Death Valley.

Oh no, don't get me wrong. I do love to VISIT snow when I feel like it and climb a snow covered peak. But then I like to come down and go back to the warmth ;) Cheers!
