2016 Wildflower Reports

Feb 5, 2016 Arches National Park Reports: Is reporting snow.

Feb 5, 2016 Valley of Fire State Park Reports: An extremely rare snowy day at Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada! 2/2/16 Nearly all of the snow that we received has already melted away. January 2016 brought over 2.5 inches of precipitation to the park. Our average annual precipitation total is roughly 4-inches (mostly rain). Hidden pockets of water can be found throughout the park, and when viewed at just the right angle, the reflections are incredibly beautiful!

Oct 15, 2015 Steve Reports: Carbon County, Utah - Last Friday Pat King and I went up to Scofield Reservoir to see if we could get some good Milky Way pictures with lake reflections. Neither of us had been there before so we got there about 5 hours before dark and explored around the lake. Hoary aster and Thistle were still blooming a bit, but the most impressive sight were the colors of the willows and grasses. Even the sage covered hillsides had some red purple colors to them.

The best part was our stop at Fish Creek. From the road we walked along the creek for about 400 yards and passed 5 beaver dams/ponds in that short distance.

Except for healthy clumps of Aspens with yellow leaves, most had lost their leaves. It made an interesting photo with them silhouetted at the top of a hill. I hope you like it. It was grey and overcast until just at dusk - when it cleared up FAST. That allowed us to take some Milky Way pictures.

Photos tips: Most digital point-and-shoot cameras have a macro function - usually symbolized by the icon of a little flower. When you turn on that function, you allow your camera to get closer to the subject, looking into a flower for example. Or getting up close and personal with a bug. More on desert photography.
