Arizona Wildflowers at Lake Pleasant

Mexican Poppies and Lupin, Lake Pleasant, Arizona, March 15

Lake Pleasant, Arizona.  Pipeline Trail.

Wildflower season in Arizona is short.  If you want to see the spectacular contrasts of a desert in bloom, go within the next week or so.  These were taken at Lake Pleasant, a desert lake just northwest of Phoenix.  This is the Pipeline trail, the best place there to see wildflowers.  


  1. Those are very pretty flowers, but I am afraid that if I went to a place like that I would sneeze.

  2. Yes, hay fever's a problem there. I'm sorry.
