When Conditions are Right, this Arid Utah Desert Bursts into Spectacular Colours.
In the South and East areas of the vast State of Utah lie sprawling national parks, cliffs and deserts that are devoid of any plant life save a few moisture grabbing shrubs. Largely known as The Badlands, this region barely seems to belong on planet Earth, seeming more like a vista from Mars.
Plants in American desert or desert-like areas have evolved to make the most of their challenging environment. In the spring, when they receive moisture, they spring into action, doing what they can to conserve as much water as possible and to bloom and reproduce quickly. These blooms can be very short-lived to conserve moisture, which is why they can be a rare sight.
