190422 Calico Wildflower Photo-Walk

Wildflower Walk – Calico Basin
April 22, 2019

We had a beautiful morning for our Wildflower Walk in Calico Basin. Photo Club members participating included Helen Delahunt, Cliff Rourke, Dale Kavula, and Diane Frankenfield.  

We identified 25 different species of wildflowers during the hike.  We didn’t see any cactus in bloom today….they will be coming into bloom in the next few weeks.  

Special highlights included finding purple sage in bloom, as well as desert snowberry, penstemons, cliff rose bushes in full bloom with their fragrant scent, and St. George’s Blue Eyed Grass.  

In addition to the beautiful wildflowers, the landscape in Calico Basin is simply stunning with the different sandstone mountain formations providing a spectacular backdrop for our wildflower photos.

Our next Photo Walk will be very special.  We will be providing a “Having Fun With Your Camera” session at the monthly meeting on May 9, 2019.  You won’t want to miss this! Hope to see you there!
