Hiking in the desert is like a treasure hunt, especially in spring.
The Cedars, just west of Roosevelt, Utah, look desolate from a distance, but look more closely and you'll find...
The earliest lupine in full bloom,
Death camas (the name sounds bad, and they are poisonous, but they look pretty),
and a variety of yellow,
purple (some variety of milkvetch?),
and tiny white flowers dotting the landscape.
Always, we find something new.
Don't be fooled into thinking there is nothing to see but the sand and rocks. Look again. Hidden treasure lies here.
