My dad is laid up, and several times has mentioned to me his disappointment at not being to get out to see the Super Bloom. 🏥

From previous hikes on Palo Verde Trail #512 at Bartlett Lake, I knew that there would be decent flower coverage. But I had no idea how good.

On the drive down Bartlett Lake Road, from Carefree to Rattlesnake Cove, it was obvious that at the very least there would be epic amounts of lupine. (On the drive back about 1:00 p.m. even more epic amounts of late blooming Mexican Gold Poppy.)

As always, Palo Verde Trail #512 is better exercise than its length and AEG would otherwise indicate.

Besides the Coulter’s Lupine and Mexican Gold Poppy, I spotted owl clover, brittlebush, chuparosa, scorpionweed, desert globemallow, cream cup, chia — not the pets! — blue dick, desert chicory, fairy duster, wooly daisy, Esteve’s Pincushion, paleface delphinium, dandelion, fiddleneck, flat top buckwheat, fairy duster … and even mutant white poppies! I probably forgot a few. 😁
