Don't trample the Aphonopelma eutylenum California Ebony Tarantula, they are big and moving slow. This must be prime time for Tribulus terrestris , Puncture vine. Certainly an interesting rough hike, some spotted Pectis papposa papposa Chinch weed, the good general bloomer is Ericameria brachylepis Boundary goldenbush. However I saw plenty of signs of flowers to come. The frost and lack of rain are probably the cause, but with the recent rain. A nice display of Malacothrix glabrata Desert dandelion, mixed with some Phacelia distans Common phacelia, the occasional Rafinesquia neomexicana Desert chicory and small Abronia villosa villosa , Desert sand verbena. This turned into an almost impossible hike, at our halfway point were we found a few Euthamia occidentalis , Western goldenrod last year.

These plants have the typical 'grazed' form, that means they hardly get a change to produce short lived flowers. It was pretty slippery after the rain up in the Gypsum area, but there was an old road, making things that much easier. So, when is the best time to experience this phenomenon? This time we wanted to take a shortcut, to stay within a 4 hour hike. Close to the Wilson trail, we did find the blooming Monardella linoides linoides Narrowleaf monardella, posted by Don on iNaturalist. The bad, there is zero maintenance on the trail into Lower Willows.

Lower Willows is still a problem, there isn't a good route yet, maybe for this season. We never realized there were so many Ericameria pinifolia Pine goldenbush on this part of the trail, most of them in bloom. They did have some fresh fruit, so bloom must be fairly recent. Rain effects the best flowers are visible east of the line Thimble trail S22 up to Ironwood resort 78. North: Along the Henderson Canyon Road hundreds of large Geraea canescens, Desert sunflower, some already in bloom. Many people have been working to contain Volutaria before it spreads across the California Desert as well as reduce local Sahara mustard populations.
