Hungry Valley Wildflowers 3/26/17

Hungry Valley OHV has a new wildflower for 3/26/17

The grasslands are slow to show bright color yet, but the deep golden-hued fiddleneck and the pinkish filaree are in abundance.

Though just starting in the valley, the flowers are beginning to get showy with purple patches of phacelia found behind Sterling Campground and north of Circle Campground; 4WD recommended to access these sites, though they are visible from Gold Hill Road if you are northbound.

The goldfields have exploded in many areas of the park, but are especially eye-catching at the practice track. The white daisy-like tidy tips are blooming between Aliklik and Lane Ranch Campgrounds among the goldfields. Further south, the blue dicks are starting to open on their long, slender stems.
