Beautiful wildflower displays here right now. Arrow-Leaf Balsamroot <I>(Balsamhoriza sagittata)</I>, and (to a lesser extent) Lupine are blooming in profusion along the access road and in the area immediately above the gate and parking area. I saw Desert Parsley along most of the walking route, as well as scattered patches of Hood's Phlox <I>(Phlox hoodii)</I> here and there. There were also some Harsh Paintbrush <I>(Castilleja hispida)</I> in just one area, on the slope right below the walking road after the first bend. Also saw some Upland Larkspur <I>(Delphinium nuttallianum)</I> and Giant-Headed Clover <I>(Trifolium macrocephalum)</I>. <P> Further up there is a little less Balsamroot, but I saw lots of Lupine that will be blooming in the next few weeks. My guess is the lower areas are at their peak now, and the upper areas still have a show to put on in the next few weeks.
