We left the Quartzsite area on Thursday and drove to Joshua Tree National Park. The flowers in the southern end were in full bloom. We didn't have time to do the whole park but it appeared the color was just north of I-10. Attached are some photos.
DonJordan said:Nice pictures Jim. Re fireweed: the fireweed we saw in Alaska was red, not yellow. We were told they are called fireweed as they are always the first plants to sprout in an area that has been burned over.
