Will this year's bloom be like the one back in 2005?/NPS

Perhaps it's the perfect birthday present for the National Park Service.

In what could be a rare ‘super bloom,’ Death Valley National Park is transforming from a valley of death to a valley of life.

“If you get the chance to see a bloom in Death Valley, especially a super bloom, you should take the opportunity to see it because it could be a once in a lifetime opportunity,” says Death Valley Ranger Alan Van Valkenburg

Join Alan in this episode of "Death Valley Exposed" and learn more about the current bloom that is spreading across the park.

Death Valley Exposed is a video podcast series that highlights various snapshots from Death Valley National Park. Produced by Bristlecone Media and the National Park Service in association with Death Valley Natural History Association, an official nonprofit partner of Death Valley National Park.



The desert is full of life,,,,;  you only rarely see it all at the same time!

What is the timeframe for the super bloom.  When would be the best time to visit to see the most abundance of flowers?

so pretty
