Spring Has finally Sprung: The “Ghost of Spring” we have been experiencing as a result of the current drought is gone. It has been replaced by a solid body of delightful vistas and colorful flowers. The very short grasses are now two or three times taller and the brownish appearance of the whole Mesa has changed into vibrant greens. And, most unexpectedly, there are many very large fields of Blue-eyed Grass: prominently displayed, and in close proximity to major trails. There are even Redmaids, a native we rarely find! In spite of virtually no rain More Mesa is still putting on a spring show!
