There are some who read here who will probably immediately recognize this flower. It's definately a regional flower and tiny tiny. If memory serves me correctly it was about 1/2 the size of my pinky finger fingernail. They may get larger I do not know but that was the size when I took the pic.

What comes to mind is "Red Maids," but I'm not sure, since it's been so long since I saw them growing--and that was more than 45 years ago in Calif.

Wally! your memory has served you well. They are indeed Red Maids!

Where did you take the picture?  I thought they were a western flower.

Your reasoning skills have not failed you either Wally :)   I took that picture the same place I took this picture.



A couple of weeks back I made a trip to the Superstition Mountains to hike with an old friend.

Nice to know that I haven't totally lost my mind.  ;D

I've never been to the Superstition Mts.  They look interesting, though.  Most of my time in Arizona (other than a few of trips to the Grand Canyon) has been spent in the southeast corner (Chiricahua Mts.) and in the desert.  That's where a lot of Arizona's unique birds are found.

My last true hike in Arizona was in the spring of 1969.  I foolishly let 2 friends talk me into hiking from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, down to the Colorado River, and than back out again--in one day!  It was a 20 mile hike. They were both long distance runners; I was not.  ::)

Now that would be a hike. Now they have warning signs about people to not over estimate their physical abilities. If they have to pull you out, you have to pay for the effort. I saw the trail from the edge and I can could tell by all the switchbacks it would be one "interesting" hike. Besides I hate long down hills. They kill my knees. I'd much rather go up hill even if I do get out of breath.

Well, I was 18 years old then.  Other than being really tired at the end, I wasn't the worse for wear.  I'm not sure I'd even attempt it now, at my advanced age.  ;D  Down first and then up, is the worst kind of hiking, in my opinion.  I'd rather go up when I'm fresh, and down at the end.
