March 19, 2010 – By tomorrow winter is over and spring is here. Get your camera’s out and hit the trail. With the wet winter, well over 3″ of rain, our desert trail will look like a trail through green fields. Well at least for the next month or two. Wild flowers and wild life should be abundant. And remember, Henderson has a photo contest each fall during National Trails Day for the best trail photos taken in Henderson. I’ll be out this weekend with my camera and hopefully next week I can post a few green photos here to prove my point.
You can ride your bike, but I prefer to walk/hike it that way you would miss anything….Tortoise will be out soon and so will snakes so watch out. I got a great photo last fall of a brown Tarantula on the trail; spring last year several tortoise photos. Other friends have photos of big horn sheep on trail etc.
Here is a photo I took in Spring 2010 which I entered into Henderson’s Trail photo contest and won second in this category…
Was out Saturday wth volunteers on the trail…WOW was it pretty and green. I’m happy to say that people seem to be taking better care of it now. Less trash…this is a good thing. Hills are green with grassses and wildflowers about to bloom.
