Most Arizona canyons are past peak for fall color. Still some color in Arnett Canyon but the normal northern entrance is closed for highway construction so you will need to come in the East or West ends of the canyon. Some images from Aravaipa and Hell Hole Canyons last week. Still some color along the Colorado River from Lake Havasu to Yuma for the next few weeks. Wildflower update: We had great rains so far this year for the 2016 bloom then dried out for almost a month. This rain we had this week was needed and should help. The brittle bush is growing very well and should have a great showing next year. The cactus are all fat and look good. We should know how the wildflower bloom will look early next year so keep an eye on this blog and don’t forget the NEW, Wild in Arizona – Photographing Arizona’s Wildflowers makes a great Christmas gift. Happy Holidays everyone and heres to a great wildflower year in 2016.
