I spent the day at Picacho Peak State Park with Peter Mortimer, Lynn Sankey, and Friends of Arizona Highways on a wildflower photo hike. Park was a "zoo" with Sunday sightseers and the annual Civil War reenactment.

Wildflowers are definitely on the wane at Picacho. Started the day in some washes off of the Calloway Trail and then headed up the Hunter Trail. After lunch at the reserved Ironwood Ramada we made our way over to the Sunset Vista Trail. I was here 2 weeks ago and the ground is now getting "crispy" verses the soft green carpet just 14 days ago.

Best flowers I found today were along Frontage Road. It was a bizarre scene with me taking belly shots in the drainage of poppies and lupine while blue coats and gray coat walked by...
