Today we had time for a short hike so we trekked around the Overton Trail in the Cave Creek Regional Park.

We did the trail in a clockwise motion and about 1/2 mile into the trail we found an explosion of yellow bittlebrush. While admiring the splendor and shooting a few photograph we heard this "sound" approaching that sounded like a small airplane or something. We quickly learned that this freight train approaching was a HUGE swarm of bees. We haven't experienced this before so it was a little alarming.

After we turned a corner and started heading north, the bittlebrush subsided and we found ourselves in a sea of purple (I don't know what these purple flowers are) intermixed with loads of chicory. It was beautiful.

As we continued our journey and hit the top of the ridge, we started heading east and found our section of the Go John Trail ablaze in poppies.

This was a marvelous little hike with tons of natural grandeur.
