It's been a long time since I've done any hiking in the rain. When I awoke to gray skies and drizzle I knew I had to hit the trail to enjoy the cool temperatures and liquid sunshine. I didn't go very far, just down Standpipe Road to the BLM's La Cueva Trails. I was hoping to see lots of wildflowers in bloom, unfortunately there weren't many to see. I saw a few cholla in bloom
While I did not see many wildflowers, I did see some interesting wildlife. I saw a desert centipede
and some velvet mites.
