Cedar Breaks National Monument is a geologic marvel but in July, visitors come for the floral display. At over 10,000 feet in elevation, the seasons arrive later than sooner.

      • The wildflowers in California were spectacular this year. I felt fortunate to have seen them during my trip in April.
