Death Valley National Park reports
The past couple weeks have been exciting and wet in Death Valley National Park. Water has the power to damage roads as well as create wildflower blooms. With nearly half of our yearly rainfall (0.95” in the past two weeks), many visitors and pollinators have their eyes trained on the ground in search of wildflowers. Behind the Furnace Creek Visitor Center plants like this Globemallow have just begun to bloom.
If you are planning to visit the park in search of flowers, we recommend taking a stroll behind the Visitor Center or making the trip to the southern regain of the park near Saratoga Springs where several species have already begun their bloom. Many other areas of the park should start blooming in the coming weeks.
