SPRING WILDFLOWER SEASON 2011
WILDFLOWER SEASON IS HERE! Arizona's 2011 spring wildflower season got off to a slow start, but thanks to some much needed rain in the last couple of weeks followed by warmer temperatures, the show has begun. Here's a couple of links to local-based hikers who update about wildflower sightings regularly: ARIZONENSIS—great resource for identifying plants, animals and geology. http://www.arizonensis.org/sonoran/places/rackensack.html http://www.arizonensis.org/sonoran WILDFLOWERS of the SONORAN DESERT—a local hiker and plant expert shares his sightings: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wildflowers-of-the-Sonoran-Desert/94940691403 http://phoenixwildflowers.com/ Also, search this blog for "wildflowers" for a selection of desert hiking trails known for colorful and abundant blooms. Happy trails!
