Wildflowers On Parade At Kaibab National Forest


I spent a few days last week, beating the heat of Southern Utah’s desert, at the cool Kaibab National Forest next to Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. The spring rains and current monsoonal thunderstorms produced a colorful wildflower scene.  More pics of the Grand Canyon to follow soon!

  1. My fave is the spiky red flowers against the rock. There’s something about the vertical stretch of the plant going partly against the grain of the rock just makes my eyeballs zing. The whole photo seems to vibrate. Awesome shot!
