(Wochit News via AOL) It's called Death Valley for a reason.

The temperature can exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit, the terrain is arid and empty, and the valley's most common association is the image of a lone, antlered animal skull baking in the sun.

So, why is everyone rushing to visit California's most unforgiving climate? Extraordinarily beautiful flowers.

In a rare super-bloom, more than 20 species of wildflower are now appearing all over the landscape.
