Sugarloaf State Park Wildflowers

note: This post refers to how the flowers were a week ago.

For great wildflowers especially in Fire areas where the blooms are unusually dense, Sugarloaf State Park is my recommendation.
My last visit was over a week ago but it’s probably still worth a visit.
Yes, the grasses are very tall and almost overwhelming but you can find clear areas that are populated with hundreds of fairy lanterns, blue eyed grass, irises, vetch, clarkia, lupine, poppies, checkerbloom; the grass is also very colorful und hypnotically beautiful.
Also, there are healthy gardens of flowers completely enclosed beneath the fields of grasses, perhaps enough sun is getting in to the blooms because the grass is so tall (5+feet in some places)?
