Jessica and I checked out Thunderbird Park for the first time. Would have been a great day if it wasn't so windy. The fiddleneck is very thick and quite a bit taller than at Piestewa right now. The brittlebush is at about the same stage, just a week or so before going nuts. The north side of the H3 has the nicest color. Oddly enough the best part is along the road to the bridge on the H3. There's a jungle of something growing that looks pretty promising. Kind of looks like columbine skeletons, wonder what it'll be... The Wild Heliotrope smells almost as rancid as Scorpion Weed along stretches when you catch a drift.

Lots of people. Reminds me of Pima Canyon at South Mountain, my long lost home :lone:
More diverse here with young to older folks.
