On the survey in the meadows and forests of the Apache National Forest, an abundance of wildflowers. I was surprised at the number and diversity. I took lots of pictures, and tried to identify them in guide books (which I mostly failed at). So anyways, here are just some of the wildflowers I have seen over the last month. I'm guessing that some of the IDs are wrong.
Wild Blue Flax.
Tansyleaf Aster. Machaeranthera tanacetifolia
Scarlet gilia. Ipomopsis aggregata.
New Mexico checkermallow.
