Absolute Flower

If you happen to be a smart resident of the Valley (who actually realizes that the desert is freaking gorgeous), there's nothing worse for you than missing wildflower season. We've kicked ourselves in the butt cheeks for spacing on it before, so be sure to get the max exposure of beautiful blooms at the "Did You Say Wildflowers?" hike at Cave Creek Regional Park. Ranger Jim Terrell will guide folks on a three-mile stretch of the Go John Trail. The gentle, scenic path will surely be an explosion of color after this winter's generous rains.
