This photo was taken last summer up in the high country just outside of Flagstaff, Arizona. Most people think the entire state is desert, however, when you drive north or even to the east the elevation is much higher. Flagstaff is approximately 7,000 feet above elevation. The wildflowers will not bloom until late summer and that is only if we have rain during the monsoon season. It has been so dry this year, that even with rain during monsoon season the flowers may not have a good showing. It has to rain a few months before so the seeds can germinate. Nevertheless, I am hoping to travel up north for more wildflowers!
