Flora of Arizona and Utah
October 20-29, 2012
Late October is certainly not the ideal season for photographing beautiful wildflowers in Arizona and Utah, but I and my brother, Clayton, still found many picturesque floral scenes as we traveled through the area. Often, spent flowers and seeds make attractive compositions.
Below, an early morning vista on Highway 9 approaching Zion National Park, revealed seed pods proudly displaying themselves on rather tall plants, with the sun lighting up the buttes in the background.
|We spent two days in the Oak Creek Canyon area and then headed north for a view of the Grand Canyon, South Rim. Then it was onward to Kanab, Utah, for three days to take in the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, and Zion National Park.|
