    We drove out to Death Valley today to enjoy the scenery. The wild flowers are in full bloom due to all the rain we have had. This is the first time in years the flowers have been so plentiful.

    A couple of those pics were taken at 200 feet BELOW sea level. It was pretty out there today. It was about 85 with a light wind.

    Even the lower desert, Arizona, my mother sent me some pictures they took one day when they went over to Goldfield, a little tourist trap right on the edge of Apache Juction where they live. Anyway, those are the Superstition Mountains, and in all the years I've lived in the desert, I have NEVER seen them GREEN!

    Wow dillo. I'm always amazed at the beautiful flowers cactus' have. This is my folk's "Easter Cactus", and my Ma said this is the most flowers it's ever had, and that it's flowers missed "Easter" by less than 48 hours. They transplanted this little cactus from a pot to the ground by their house in Arizona from Wisconsin.
