Drum Canyon Road - 2016

A little known gem for wildflowers in central California is Drum Canyon Road between highway 246 and the town of Los Alamos.  On a good year this short drive can offer a good display of many types of wildflowers.  Since this area had received more rain this year, we decided to check it out.

Scarlet Pimpernel



The amount of Tacky Phacelia along the road this year was amazing.  This intense blue flower is one of our favorites.
