ilanarama: me on a bike on the White Rim trail (biking)
[personal profile] ilanarama
The park where I've been doing most of my mountain biking lately is called Horse Gulch - it's a big hunk of city and private land on the southeast side of town. (Incidentally, this is also where I do my trail running - when I can run trails!) It's a very high desert-y climate, rocks and sand and scrub, but it's particularly nice in the spring because of the wildflowers.

bluebonnet in Horse Gulch meadow

I think this is bluebonnet, a kind of lupine.

phlox in Horse Gulch meadow

paintbrush in Horse Gulch meadow

My guesses are that these are longleaf phlox and early paintbrush, but there are so many species of both, and I'm very much not an expert.

Great pix... again =) You really do take some of the most awesome photos.

I've been trying to catch up, not only with your posts here but with your Flickr pix too.

This past year has been a challenge and I'm now a nannygranny to my 1st grandchild. So I've somehow lost any spare time I once had.

But! I've gotta maintain my ~grown up~ status and keeping up with your adventures is the best place to do it! =)

Marathons and travels and building, oh my! I LOVE seeing/hearing about what you've been doing. Thanks for being my vicarious thrill! =)
