Coconino Forest Flowers Near The DCT

Category: Arizona,Lowell

Arizona’s forests are so pretty during flower season! Every other half-acre is a charmed meadow sprinkled with flowers of all hues.  Nobody plants them; they grow wild everywhere.  It’s been like this for about 3 weeks now.  During the “golden hour” it will take your breath away as the angled light transfixes the blossoms and spatters the forest floor with long beams of our star’s light.  All of these images were taken within a mile of the Discovery Channel Telescope.

    Nice captures. Seeing the same, and more, blooms here on the North Rim.
