#14 Oatman: Just past bloom but ready for brittlebush and beavertail cactus next few weeks.
#15 Tres Alamos: I have not seen it but reports of Joshua trees blooming.
#17 The Gibraltar Mountain: Area is peaking now. Best in the past 15 years!
#20 Lake Pleasant Regional Park: A once a decade bloom is underway.
#21 White Tank Mountain Regional Park: Getting ready for the brittlebush bloom.
#25 Bartlett Lake: At peak Mexican gold poppy bloom now and is the best showing in a decade. Lupine are a foot tall on the high slopes and lots of other wildflowers to fill in the open spaces. That’s not even the good news! Bartlett is 1-2 weeks away from an epic brittlebush bloom. If we get rain we could see a 1998 double bloom the hillsides will be covered in gold and yellow with some red chuparosa. Try Horseshoe Lake if you want to miss the crowds. The hillsides on the west side of the road are looking good.
#45 The Rolls: Bloom is good but the area has been invaded by ORV’s who have cut down the protective fences.
#59 Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument: Good brittlebush bloom starting.
In other areas not listed in our Wild in Arizona guidebook, there are good orange globemallow carpets west of Gila Bend along the river. Also, just received a “getting close to dune blooms” report on Mohawk dunes.
