Part Two of Pahrump and DV



As we entered the boundaries of the park, we started seeing some almost florescent orange bushes. We thought it must be some strange desert bush that we didn't recognize. Upon closer inspection, it appeared to be a parasitic plant that chokes out the life from the host plant. It had a strange beauty, but creepy too.



I don't know what the name of this wildflower was, but they were so beautiful when we found them. They called out to me to walk to where they were and take photos. Who says the desert is always lifeless and without color? Not me!

Never had much desire to visit Death Valley, but after looking at your last post, perhaps I will. The colors and photos of your current outing are beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
