If you remember how excited I got when I found out about Rackensack Canyon, you have a feeling for how great I thought yesterday’s hike was! We went on the Colonel Devlin Trail starting at Washington Park Trailhead outside of Payson. TONS of flowers I’ve never seen. Most were just starting to bloom so there’s still plenty of time to photograph them. You’re following a stream much of the way which is thick with yellow Columbine on the banks right now. I hope to go back before they’re gone. For a photographer, I would call this an all day trip.
We ended up finding 26 varieties of butterflies. The wind made it difficult to get sharp photos of them all but I do have quite a few. I hope to create a slideshow this afternoon for Monday’s post. In the meantime, here are a couple of photos.
