Jade heard on NPR that the poppies were going to be in full bloom this past weekend because of all the rain and warmer temperatures we’ve had this spring. So, we took a quick road trip to see the Pichacho Peak poppies on Saturday.
We’ve never been down to Picacho Peak State Park. Since it’s only a quick hour drive on the 10 toward Tucson, we packed up the kids and headed down first thing Saturday morning.
Either way, I found our trip to see the Picacho Peak poppies really enjoyable. I only wish I had a bit more time to hike around and explore. The kiddos were getting cranky, so we had to cut the trip a bit short.
If you’re ever in Phoenix or Tucson when the poppies are in bloom, I’d highly suggest you make the quick trip to see them. For those of you into hiking, I think the Picacho Peak State Park would be worth your while for some really fabulous views of the Sonoran desert.
