Treasure hunt at SBNM

March 22, 2015

It’s spring on the calendar, and while other areas of the country may still be covered in snow, here in Wyobraska, the sun has been very warm.

So warm, in fact, that spring flowers are already emerging at Scotts Bluff National Monument.

Now that sunlight lasts longer these days, why not go take a hike up the Saddle Rock Trail and see how many wildflowers you can find? A springtime treasure hunt!

Here are a few Bugman and I found yesterday on our end-of-day walk:

Missouri milkvetch

Narrow leaved musineon

Hood's phlox, with a darkling beetle right smack dab in the middle of the picture. (Bugman was happy. He got to see an insect.)
