It's the weekeeennnnnd!!!! At least it is for me after about 6 weeks straight of work with no days off. I'll be headed down to Death Valley to explore some favorite badlands in a little more depth. And maybe I'll snoop around for some flowers, although I know there aren't many around. Unlike in 2016 when the park erupted in color and there were flowers just about everywhere you looked.
Oh hey, by the way, if you are going wildflower hunting this spring please practice ethical and leave no trace principles. Don't step on, lie down in, roll in, or pick the wildflowers. These practices kill the plants and make it harder for blooms to happen in the future. Also consider the effect you have on people coming after you. Everyone wants to experience vast fields of flowers. No one wants to see the dead patch where you rolled in the flowers for your selfie. But respectful, be considerate. The landscape is more important than your photo.
