The park’s wildflower bloom will kick off in July and peak in August

The “peak” bloom for wildflowers is heavily dependent on weather and precipitation patterns, so accurate predictions are difficult. But – and here’s the good ‘but’ – the bloom is already beginning.

So if you want to see the blooms, you might wanna start planning your trip now.
