Joshua Tree Wildflower Report 2/13/12

Joshua Tree just published a wildflower report for 2/13/12:

Joshua Tree Blooming Wildflowers as of February 13, 2012

“Early flowers are blooming in the southern area of the park, between the Bajada Nature Trail and Cottonwood Visitor Center. Red chuparosa and yellow bladderpod flowers are visible along the road in this area, and many other species may be seen in the washes. The translucent white flowers of desert blazing star are especially abundant.
Recommended trail for flower-watchers is Mastodon Peak, a three-mile moderate loop, starting from Cottonwood Spring.”
