    Default Check out this video of flooding at Death Valley

    I've seen this kind of flooding one other time -- but this is very dramatic

    Default Wow!

    That's quite incredible. Hard to imagine it is the same place I saw. Wish I could see this spring's wildflowers.

    Default Wow indeed !

    Yes that's quite an incredible site and so different to what we think we know about Death valley. Shame about the devastation caused but it will be interesting to see what affect it has in the valley.

    If we get any of the promised rain this winter then I would love to be there this Feb-March to see the wildflowers. Wonder if they will have the roads opened by then.

    Default Most recent 1000-year storm was 2005

    2005 was the last time there was a 1000-year flood. Here are some of the photos that Megan and I captured of that glorious spring blooming period...

    I wanted so BAD to go to Death Valley that year but we had two strikes against us. DH wasn't retired yet and our old motor home was on it's last leg.
