We have not seen a lot of mustard yet, and didn't see any Wally Baskets.
This is where we're watching. The Los Vaqueros Trail, just below the Badger Pass Trail. (just to the left of the middle of the map.) Spectacular yellow lupin in the past here. If you get there at mid-morning, the lupin appear to be translucent. Photos can't do it justice.
We're also hoping, but will probably be disappointed, for the Montero Trail area near the Walnut Staging Area near the North Entrance where the new ponds are located. In 2013, it was sweeping with tiny yellow flowers across the entire valley. That may have been a result of the dam expansion disturbing the soil. But we'd love to see it again, and one would think (hope!)) it would happen after all that rain. We looked for signs of tiny yellow flowers, and didn't see any. The ponds are full of water, so it's worth a walk. We saw lots of red-winged blackbirds on the tules in the ponds.
Outdoor Writer Tom Stienstra thinks wildflowers will explode in early April, and with lots of buds throughout the watershed, we think he's right. The flowers aren't telling!
