The park contains two types of desert, mojave and colorado. Yesterday’s pics were from the mojave desert section. Today’s pics are from the colorado desert. First an oasis complete with palm trees.
Then a south-facing bajada (slope below the mountains). Bajadas capture the runoff from the mountains and thus are lush with plant life. This one faces south so is among the first to bloom.
Cacti are abundant.
And on this bajada the desert flowers were making the most of recent rains and now sunny warm weather.
Jean had a great time snapping photos.
She captured this pic of a humming bird feasting on the ocotillo blossoms.
