An acquaintance who lives at my townhouse complex called me this early afternoon to inquire where the Spring'17 Wildflowers were located. She is not a hiker and just wanted to drive around to see some blooms. I immediately went to our HAZ Wildflowers Map- :next: hikearizona.com/wil ... .php and soon realized that just to send her driving up some local road which I did not know if there would actually be any flower displays might be a mistake :? A short hike seemed to be in-order but I knew better than to send a non-hiker out in the wilderness for the first time too..

I hardly ever anymore do impromptu hikes without a prior week minimum of pre-planning but today I was in the mood for some fresh air with a simple hike plus the idea of viewing some spring wildflowers within a close proximity drive seemed like a good idea.. and it was!

Our Highway 87 Ballantine TH was a good choice and on the drive to even the shoulders of the highway are really beginning to bust open with various varieties of wildflowers. It was a bright, sunny, high 80's day so we only did a short out and back section (first hiking south) on this 2.5 mile loop, but still a fun, enjoyable, and rewarding afternoon OUTSIDE! :)
