Death Valley Flowers

Death Valley Flowers

In the spring, if the conditions are optimal, the Death Valley blooms as the desert comes alive with fields of incredible flowers transforming the desert landscape. That year the Death Valley flowers that year were good. We tried our luck out at the Ibex Sand Dunes as we ventured down the washboard roads into the backcountry. It was a good sign seeing yellow coreopsis flowers along the road. Plus, the whole southern end of Death Valley smelled with the fragrant with scent of the sand verbena flowers. To our surprise we found quite a good display of the pink flowers in the sand dunes. I was running around in the sane trying to find a shot of the flowers and the dunes as the sunset light started going off. And then I found these sand verbena beauties.
