Six varieties of wildflowers in bloom, including the first wild lily of the year.
Bald eagles, ravens and red-tailed hawks riding the thermals near the towering rimrock cliffs, looking for the next meal to catch.

The remnants of a stretch of old road chiseled out of the cliffs, a short-lived experiment to use convicts for construction work a century ago.
Three more weeks of winter.
Anticipation grows for spring to arrive.
