Hiking in March 
We start off cold      
     soon hikers remove layers. 
Looking down on the trail 
High behind saguaro cactus      
     some hikers now out of sight. 
Meadow below has patches 
Of green but few wildflowers, 
   some poppies begin to open. 
Nobody bothers you on the trail 
Where the mountains      
     sweep down on Catalina.

This trail is usually an excellent wildflower trail, not this year. The primary reason is very little rain this winter. Some recent rains will help for propagating next year’s wildflowers — no “Fields of Poppies” this year.
