Bloom of 2010

It has turned out to be quite a wonderful bloom. A write-up in Las Vegas says it is the third best bloom in the last one hundred years! These are just a few of the pictures we have acquired in the last couple of weeks while driving around the valley floor---south past Badwater to Jubilee Pass and around on the West Side Road.
