Despite the dry, hot summer conditions in Death Valley, springtime often brings a luscious bloom of colorful wildflowers. Just a little bit of winter rain can bring an abundance of life to Death Valley. With mild temperatures in the 60-70s, mid-February to mid-May is the best time to explore the park and enjoy the wildflowers. Will this year be a great year for wildflowers? Only time can tell! We have had a few early winter rain storms so make your plans to visit in the Spring and see what nature has in store.
