09. East Mojave Desert - Wildflowers (cc)

Thousands of people drive through the East Mojave Desert every day on their way to or from Las Vegas, Nevada. As they go down the highway from Baker, California, many are unaware they are passing through one of the great natural treasures of California. As host Martin Hale explains, "prepare yourself for jaw-dropping scenery"; this vast preserve and surrounding area is the most magnificent desert in the state. It has its own unique flora and sights and once you've seen it you'll never forget it. On one hand are volcanic cones and lava flows, while on the other are the Kelso dunes, and, of course, eye-popping wildflowers are featured along with majestic vistas and a Joshua tree forest. Flora observed include: Giant Four-O-Clock; Yellow Desert Primrose; California Butterweed; Fried Egg Flowers; Mojave Aster; Common Phacelia; Spotted Langloisias (Lilac Sunbonnet); Humble Gilia; Bigelow's Monkeyflower; Spiny Menodora; Desert Thistle; Desert Plantain; Banana Yucca; Scarlet Gaura; Bristly Langloisia; Palmer's Penstemon; Desert Marigold; Desert Globe Mallow; Antelope Bush; Heath Aster; Claret Cup Cactus; Gooding's Verbena; Purple Or Gray Ball Sage; Mariposa Lily; Apache Plume; Desert Five-Spot; Hedgehog Cactus. 2010/CC JSCA 30 min.
