I had been so disappointed in my last few hikes of not seeing very many wildflowers and I didn't want to totally miss out so I formulated a plan for my next day at work.

Wednesday, March 6th. Earlier in the day I took a chance and walked in to my boss's office and said, "Can I leave an hour early to go shoot wildflowers?" I had my reasons why all lined up but he didn't even hesitate and said, "Sure." I guess after 28 years of working together, he probably knew he would lose any argument with me anyway, ha!


The drive out was a bit longer than I remembered and I really didn't see any poppies until I got closer to the lake. I recalled from a couple other times of being out here that I would need to head down the road heading north. I took one of the side roads down toward the lake where I parked and took some photos and was pretty much in Tibbermode from then on.

I wanted to find some white poppies and I did. Up on the road heading to Rattlesnake Canyon is where most of the great flora was. I stopped several times coming and going and took video of the drive as there weren't many people out late in the afternoon on a weekday. I was going to go to Horseshoe Dam but once the road got bad, I decided it might not be a good idea plus it was late and no one knew where I was.

Here is Part 1 of the drive and shoot of the superbloom: [ youtube video ]
Part 2 as I'm continuing the drive and shoot: [ youtube video ]

I keep forgetting that when I go into moviemode my screen is scrunched a little. But I think the videos turned out pretty good. Plus there's lots more pretty cool photos!

Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
