Peralta Trail Flowers

Lately, when I blog about our hikes I talk about birds. They are so fun to hunt and find to try to get a picture of!  Their constant flittering makes that picture ever so hard which increases the drive to snap one in me!  This post is different.  It is spring and Arizona is at its best.  When you look out in the desert you see brown and green, then you look harder and see the most brilliant colors and flowers imaginable!

Here are the flowers of the Peralta Trail in Gold Canyon, AZ.
