About once every 10 years, Death Valley is coated in millions of flowers, becoming the valley of life.
The conditions have to be just so in order for the flowers to bloom, including the perfect amount of rain combined with conducive temperatures.
About 20 species of wildflowers are currently blooming in the desert, northeast of Los Angeles.
Those interested in seeing the super bloom should go sooner rather than later because if temperatures reach above 100 degrees, the flowers will wilt and die.
Strong winds can also dry out the flowers, nipping the super bloom in the bud.
If the temperatures stay under 100 and no strong winds come, the flowers will likely stick around until April.
Death Valley National Park spokesperson Abby Wines told KGW that the best times to visit are early in the morning or late in the afternoon because the mid-day sun can drown out the color.
The last time the blooms exploded on the desert floor was in 2005.
Park Ranger Alan Van Valkenburg said the super bloom is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
“If you get the chance to see a bloom in Death Valley, especially a super bloom, you should take the opportunity to see it because it could be a once in a lifetime opportunity,” Valkenburg said in a YouTube video.
