CA – Death Valley National Park, Darwin Falls

Although I was on a mission to find wildflowers, I’m always in need of distractions enroute as I don’t enjoy long distance driving. A diversion from Highway 395 to Death Valley was a logical choice. I stopped and hiked around a few overlook areas on my way to find a camping spot for the night.

Pretty nice campsite view. It made for some great sunset and sunrise views, although it was a bit windy.

Good morning world!

I had originally planned to camp on the road to Darwin Falls, but as a rule follower, I respected the sign.

i was first car to the trailhead. By the time I returned from the short hike the parking lot was full.

Seeing cottonwood trees and green anywhere in Death Valley is a special treat and something not to be taken for granted.

There was water in the creek.

Look at that lush green.Those are ferns . . . in Death Valley!

Found my first wildflowers of the season and even a ladybug.
