Bluebell Extravaganza

First of all it would be good to watch this cache for news of when the bluebells are at their best. I will be posting that information here every year.

This is a peanut butter jar painted camouflage. It’s located in an area that in places comes alive with an ocean of blue bells--and even pink and white bells--every year. It’s truly a sight to see and smell these flowers when they reach their peak a week or two before Mother’s Day. To see the flowers best I start at the parking lot and proceed down the trail to the left (the blue jay trail). Then I make the long loop to gold finch trail before making my way back to the car. The blue jay trail bridge over Prescott Creek has been moved by floodwaters downstream a bit.

When the blue bells are in blossom PLEASE take the paths as much as possible.

You may want to look at the gallery of images. One of the newest ones is this surreal apparition of bluebells submerged under flood waters pouring through the woods on 4/26/07. Click on the image.
