I love love the Desert with great fondness and am in my element every time I am there...I cannot wait to get back there. Today's ecosystem to highlight is the American Desert: Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, Death Valley National Park, California, United States. The hottest place in North America on all fronts. Who has been & wants to go back?

Just came across this picture in my archive that I have forgotten about:

The same flower but different location: Desert Globemallow (Sphaeralcea ambigua) Joshua Tree National Park, California, United States.

California is so rich with Biodiversity/Ecosystems/different habitats...It has Ocean-Mountains-Desert...It is the most fantastic State to live in...It would surely be the place I would live in if I were in the States.

It will be a great expedition hoping to track the little bugger to Peru...that would be my ultimate goal.
