Desert Chicory and Desert Dandelion

Is this I-frickin' 25?


Early Saturday morning I walked to town via the quiet, open desert behind me. It is hard to resist taking pictures. Besides the beauty of the wildflowers I love looking at Indian Head, the mountain to the northwest. Once someone points out his profile and headdress, it is easy to see why the name stuck.

Yesterday this quiet town was a major tourist destination. Cars, jeeps and RVs were streaming in from all directions and people were parking along the roads to walk in any open space they could in search of flowers. I could see a traffic jam to the west at 9:00 am this morning as people tried to get to the state park, probably to hike Palm Canyon. Susan and I decided not to attend the Plein Air Art reception last night because we didn't want to fight the traffic and crowds. Sunday will probably be more of the same so I will hitch a ride to the pot luck at the tennis center this afternoon because it is crazy to try and cross the street on foot. C'mon Monday!
