Spring Wildflowers - Part V
After visiting the Carrizo Plain, we headed over to Death Valley National Park where they were reporting a better than average wildflower bloom.
The weather was overcast and threatening when we arrived in Furnace Creek. The Furnace Creek Inn appeared to be the "treasure" at the end of the rainbow.
This little plant is found only in Death Valley, only in certain areas, and only in wet years.
Gravel Ghost or Parachute Plant
Desert Gold or Desert Sunflower
Lots of Desert Gold at the southern end of the park.
Desert Sand Verbena
Mix of Desert Gold and Desert Sand Verbena.
