Mohave Desert Wildflower Bloom

California is still in its fourth year of below average precipitation for most regions statewide and mountain snowpack has been much more below average because of high snowlines all winter long. Fortunately this winter delivered storms over many months compared to the last three years when precipitation came in November and December and pretty much stopped. The desert region east of the southern Sierra Nevada is generally at above average rain fall and the wildflower show is reported to be at insane levels here and there. Jackie and I made a day trip to Short Canyon on the eastern Sierra Nevada escarpment and the great Trona Pinnacles.
