If there’s one thing a person can’t deny, it’s the fact that nature is indeed a beautiful force that has the ability to destroy as well as create numerous rarities and miracles. One such miracle emerged in Chile’s Atacama Desert, which is one of “the driest places on the planet.” Residents living in Atacama Desert are being treated by Mother Nature, herself; the vast land has undergone an absolutely stunning and beautiful flower bloom which has filled the landscape with vibrant purples and yellows.  Vegetation is an impossible task in Atacama Desert due to the land’s lack of rain; Kristina Pydynowski, AccuWeather’s Senior Meteorologist, states, “Rainfall is extremely hard to come by in Northern Chile.”

As if simply to prove that statement wrong, Atacama Desert experienced hordes of rainfall earlier this year, which resulted in flooding -- flooding that provided sustenance for the long-dormant flower seeds. A flower blossom as beautiful as this one is hard to come by, and, now, travelers and even residents of the area can enjoy nature’s beauty through November. Many people took to Twitter to tweet photos of Nature’s latest phenomena!

Check out one shot of the vibrant flower blossoms below!
