Everyone should have a great time seeing the wildflowers on the Lake Cuyamaca Canyoneer hike. Spring flowers were just arriving on April 16 when we did a hike in the area. We visited the Stonewall mine and Stonewall Peak. More should be in bloom for the May 21 hike. We identified the following plants in bloom during our hike:
Amsinckia intermedia Common Fiddleneck
We also saw the following animals:
The black oak was just beginning to form their spring leaves and many appeared as a very beautiful creamy red in the distance. Many of the oaks also had their catkins in full bloom. It was a very beautiful sight.
