You should REALLY try to get to The Ladder Canyon Trail In Painted Canyon As Soon As You Can. After coming out of the slot and making your way to the ridge line, make the usual journey to the wash and then down the two ladders to complete the circuit…I seriously doubt the flower show will get better than it is now.  Ghost Flowers in huge numbers, Sand Blazing Stars also.  Creosote Bushes green and flowering, Brittle Bush the same, Desert Marigolds, Little Gold Poppy’s, Desert Poppy’s, Lupine’s galore, mixed in with all of the other colors.  Yellow Cups, Rock Daisy’s, Bladder Pods, Desert Mallow, Chuparosa, and a few blooming Ocotillo. Yes, color to the max, have never witnessed such a wealth of blooms on this hike…ever. Take advantage of this as soon as you are able.
