Wildflower Walk on the PCT Near Little Pilot Peak 6-3-20

Photos by Darryl and Barry H.

Rich, Sunny, Darryl, Bob, Tracy, Barry, Sabin and I trooped up to Soda Mountain to the Little Pilot Peak trail head on a lovely June morning, warmer that expected.   The wildflower finds began almost immediately and people were quizzing each other and making observations --  everyone is becoming a bona fide wildflower floozy.

We discovered -- count 'em-- 70 different species on the trail, BY FAR the highest count in the brief two years we've been doing this, a real testament to the sharp eyes of the crew!
