Flowers at Ubehebe

April 1, 2015

Ubehebe Gold

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.

Death Valley Flowers

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.

Morning in the Monitors

Monitor Morning

Another view of the last shreds of fall in Nevada’s Table Mountain Wilderness – I really need to catch this area a week earlier next time! The view is looking west from the Monitor Range over Monitor Valley, the Toquima Range and the Toiyabes on the far horizon.
