Recently shot near the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
The Kaibab National Forest is an anomaly in a land of deep red rock canyons and desert scrub. Situated high on a plateau, the Kaibab reaches some 9,000 feet into the Northern Arizona sky.
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.
It’s spring and the flowers were blooming along California’s Pacific Ocean Coastline. Flowers include California Poppies, California Morning Glory, Daisies, flowering Ice Plant and Lupine.
Wildflowers were blooming along California’s Pacific Ocean Coastline. Some, I recognize, others I couldn’t identify even with my flower book.
Along Highway 46 in Central California are fields of mostly flowering yellow Mustard Grass. Winter rains have forced a beautiful blossom. More wildflower images along the Pacific Ocean and the orange hills near Tehachapi will follow soon.
Had to go to Death Valley National Park to check out the Super Bloom. I’ve been going to Death Valley for about 10 years and have never experienced this amount of flowers and people. I captured the floral display starting a few hours before sunset. The predominate flower south of Furnace Creek is the Desert Gold Sunflower or as I like to call it, Geraea Canescens. Stay tuned for more pics from Eureka Dunes, fighter jets and the Pacific Coast.
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!
I’ve been out to South Coyote Buttes 5 or 6 times but never experienced the blooming desert wildflowers on display. We’ve had quite a bit of rain this spring and it shows, even in the desert. South Coyote Buttes is on the Arizona/Utah border and is about 2o miles from the nearest paved highway.
