Never is that more apparent than right now. Death Valley is in the midst of a â€œsuper bloom.â€ A rare explosion ofÂ more than 20 species of wildflowers currently blanket the valley floor in huesÂ of yellow, white, pink, purple and red.Â According to the Los Angeles Times,Â itâ€™s been 11 yearsÂ since Death Valley was so â€œfull of life.â€
The park, which averages a scantÂ two inches of rainfall for the entire year, saw three strong rainstorms in Octoberâ€”with one event producing nearlyÂ three inches of rain in just five hours.
The deluge caused extensive flooding and damage, but it also sparked the beautiful bloom, which started back inÂ November but has exploded in the last few weeks.
