Spectacular Explosion of Mexican Poppies

The Mexican Poppies have burst into bloom on the southern and western-facing mountainsides east of Wickenburg. If you have an opportunity to travel that direction during the spring bloom season, you will be rewarded with close-up and distant views of hills and peaks that are brightly painted with the yellow-gold color of poppies.

This photo shows the southern hillside above King Solomon Gulch as you approach the Unida Mine Group on Constellation Road.

Even the distant mountainsides will provide spectacular scenes with thousands of poppies. Some of these bright slopes are visible from more than five miles away.

    Keep these great articles and pictures coming. The pictures of the Mexican poppies are brilliant in their yellow-gold colour. You are a very prolific writer and I have enjoyed every one of your articles. Also have fun the March 15th hike into Atos Mine and Balancing Rock area. I would have loved to be on the walk about but will be driving to Wickenburg from Texas.
