Water and Wildflowers - 7-23-19
Tuesday, July 23, 2019
We still have LOTS of water, which also means we have LOTS of wildflowers!
Cyndi Marlowe got the above photo, while Barbara Fuller got the below shot of the rushing water in Spring Creek:
And Jim Pierce captured the still-gushing upper Fish Creek Falls:
All this water means wildflowers, like these Jeff Hall found at Hahn's Peak:
The fields of wildflowers Larry Pierce found in the Flat Tops Wilderness Area, including a huge field of wild columbine:
And the wildflowers framing the Sleeping Giant:
Fortunately the water isn't as HIGH as it was earlier in the season, when Shannon Lukens snapped a photo of water covering the Core Trail going under the underpass by the library:
We're at that magic time when the water is just right, the wildflowers are at their peak, and the weather isn't too hot - paradise!
