The 'Driest Place On Earth' Is Covered In Pink Flowers

The Atacama Desert in Chile, known as the driest place on Earth, is awash with color after a year's worth of extreme rainfall.

The malva flowers on the floor of the Atacama desert bloom every five to seven years, usually coinciding with El Nino. But they have been taking advantage of this year's particularly rainy conditions, leading to the 'most spectacular blossoming of the past 18 years.'
