Wildflower bloom peaks along South Hill bluff trails

NATURE -- The showy bloom of arrowleaf balsamroot has turned portions of the South Hill bluff into a wild version of sunflower fields.

The bloom is peaking under delicate white blossoms of serviceberry.

There's no better time to hike the 25 miles or so of trails below High Drive. 

If you've never been there, start from the parking area at 29th and High Drive or the one near 37th and High Drive.
