1st trip
Thursday "date hike" with husband on my usual day off but he took this one off to enjoy Spring weather and flowers. Chose this loop to check out the petroglyphs and get view of the flowers in the basin area below East End trail.

Lots and lots of brittle bush. Good number of hedge hog cactus in bloom. Some prickly pear blooms, few globemallow, rare poppies, rare lupine, rare marigolds. Scattered desert mariposa lily - bright orange so pretty.

Petroglyphs are not hard to find - take first left into grassy area towards the tall cottonwoods.

Had lunch sitting on the bench at intersection of Windmill and Coachwhip. Saw 5 humans in 5 hours!!! That's amazing and awesome. Weather was nice until the last hour when wind was gone and that direct sun was getting to me. Got home for shower and a short nap before picking up kids from school then ballet.
