After reaching Sheep Canyon, one of my favorite places on planet Earth (!), I began my pedal-trip back the way I came. First, I stopped to get a few photos of the green mountains around Cougar Canyon.
A photo (below) looking the other way, meaning in the direction that I had come, which is Coyote Canyon, which kind of runs in a northwest to southeast direction.
Back in this area, the elevation is higher, so there were fewer flowers at this time. Nevertheless, if I slowed down and looked around, I could see they were starting to emerge.
To appreciate them from another viewpoint, get down on the ground!
