After boondocking for a month with acres of empty space around me, it sure feels weird to be hemmed in to such a small area. But I need to get used to it because when I get to New Mexico I'll spend the rest of the Spring in New Mexico state parks.
Well so far I'm fairly disappointed in the flower situation and the lack thereof at Picacho Peak State Park. I haven't done any running around yet but from what I've seen just coming into the Park there was a lot more wild flowers in Ajo than there are here, and the article I read on the Internet said that this place is full of wild flowers, but so far their wrong.
There are small bunches of yellow flowers here and there even in the campground, but I thought there were supposed to be fields of flowers growing everywhere at this Park. I did pass several fields of flowers on the way here some of which were just outside of Ajo but most places it was difficult or dangerous to pull over and stop so I had to drive on by some of the prettiest places, that's one of the problems of pulling a trailer.
In order to give my wild flower search the best chance at success I unhitched the Arctic Fox and tomorrow I will go driving around some and see what I can find. I hadn't planned on unhitching for such a short stay but it looks like if there's some wild flowers here I may have to go looking for them.
Well even if I don't find a wild flower or two at least I got to dump my tanks, and since it's in the mid-80s I had the opportunity to turn on my air conditioner and give it a little exercise.
Some yellow flowers in my campsite. These yellow wild flowers are the only kind of flowers I've seen so far at Picacho peak state Park and they just grow in bunches they don't spread out very much. Hopefully tomorrow I can find some more wildflowers.
