A disappointing wildflower season so far. Not so the cactus flowers. The buckhorn (waxy yellow) and Engelmann Hedgehog (magenta) are just starting to pop and what knockouts they are! Given a choice between wildflowers and cactus blooms, I'd take the latter every time. A few years ago coming down W off the VOAZ crest, I found a glorious field of golden poppies. This year, same place, nada. The hills are almost yellow with blooming creosote and brittlebush. Modest traffic on a Saturday afternoon due probably to cool temps (69) and stout breeze (E), which in shadows made it pretty cool indeed.
