Looking towards the horizon, the valley floor seemed to be a lush prairie of solid daisies, but looking down, the ground was mostly rocks, sand and bare dirt sprinkled with plants here and there. The Desert Gold plants were at least a couple feet apart and stood about thigh high. They were also probably the largest flowers. Many of the other blooms were no larger than the fingernail on my pinky and some were about the size of a freckle. Too bad I didn't have a better macro lens. (Calflora)
