Death Valley’s ‘Super Bloom’ Is The Best Reason To Head To The Desert In 11 Years

03.21.16 3 years ago

You’ve heard of Death Valley — the dry desert that’s considered the hottest place in North America. The harsh landscape and scorching heat may have kept you away in the past, but this year there’s a rare and wonderful reason to make the trek — especially if you really, really like flowers. Death Valley’s usually barren landscape is currently blanketed in more than 20 species of colorful desert wildflowers thanks to a rare “super bloom.”

Unusually strong storms conspired to create the best wildflower crop since 2005, and according to our man Park Ranger Alan in the video above, this could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
