This short Glen Canyon hike was to view the wild radish spectacular that happens each year around this time.
Descending from the canyon’s east rim this time, down from the west edge of Christopher Park in Diamond Heights: 1 thru 5
Steps down to the viewbench: 6 thru 10
93 steps in all for this first stairway: 11 thru 31
Continuing down: 32 thru 38
The radish flowers were mostly as remembered from last year in this area but it looked like a circle of tall grass and radish blooms had been mowed on the downhill side of the trail. So why not let the tall grass and radish alone for the short time this spring show runs? It will be desert-dry soon enough.
Uplifting blooms: 39 thru 59
Back again, this time ascending 79 steps to the top trail just below Christopher Park: 60 thru 71
Trail just below Christopher Park: 72, 73
Christopher Park: 74 thru 77
Steps to the tennis courts: 78, 79
