Another Death Valley flower snapshot, this one from last Sunday at Ubehebe Crater: still some nice flowers, but fading. The best blooms we saw, though regrettably did not explore and photograph, were west of Emigrant Campground between 3,000-4,000. Above 4,500 or so, not much was happening yet besides a few paintbrushes. But places like the top of Towne Pass and up in the Panamints were looking very green, so they’d be well worth checking out as the blooms move uphill.
This is just a morning snapshot from about three weeks ago in Death Valley. Though these below-sea-level displays from early in the month are said to be over, the blooms will have moved higher now. I’m heading down again tomorrow, mostly just for a family camping trip, but hopefully with some flowers and photography included.
