Wildflowers on my mind

Spring seems to have sprung, so my thoughts have been turning toward desert wildflowers, which I understand are blooming in profusion in the lower parts of Death Valley right now—late February, 2016. Chances are that’s where we’ll be heading in a few weeks.

That got me thinking about my trip to Death Valley in April, 2010, and to Craters of the Moon for the bloom there two months later, in June, 2010. Both of those trips resulted in YouTube slide shows.

I’ve just revised “Craters of the Moon—Wildflowers & Lava Flows” by adding a jazz guitar soundtrack & a couple new slides:  Craters of the Moon: Wildflowers & Lava Flows

The Death Valley slide-show: Death Valley Wildflowers, 2010

  1. Gary,Good to see your postings.  I don’t get much hiking and back country horse back trips any more.  Had to put down my saddle horse, “Chocolate” in Jan 2015 –he was 23 years old. The best back country horse I ever rode.  I am a bit limited my outdoor activities as I had my 10th knee surgery (6th Total Knee Replacement) Oct 2015.  I am walking and biking these days, but my mobility is scaled way back.  So I am glad to see/read your outdoors adventures.  Keep it up!!!!Cheers,G.o.Vaka Grumpie Ol Vic

  2. Have a good trip. Identifying the plants and flowers was a treat. Loved the presentation. Kellie C
