Death Valley is the hottest, driest place on the entire North American continent.

But once every 10 years or so, something magical happens: The valley explodes with a rare floral ‘super bloom', in which its native plants literally spring to life.

Death Valley started showing signs of a super bloom in early January after heavy rains pummeled the region in fall, according to the Death Valley National Park website.

Travelers are driving in from all around to catch what some experts call a once-in-a-lifetime event, a rare chance to see an arid valley covered in brilliantly-colored flowers. According to the Los Angeles Times, it’s been 11 years since Death Valley was so ‘full of life.’”

I was one of the luckiest travelers. Here are our photos walking through a field of Desert Sunflowers during rare ‘super bloom’ of wildflowers in Death Valley National Park March 24, 2016.
