Inyo County, California, US
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)

Not 100% sure of ID. But, they were everywhere that year. It was the wettest year in i think over 100 years in death valley and the big dry lake at the bottom mostly filled up!
