Every spring Smith Rock State Park bursts into a showy display of color as flowers make an appearance before the heat of summer.
 

While the rocks and wildlife get a lot of attention, take a moment to look closely at the high desert flora along the trails. They only hang around for a brief period though, usually for a few weeks of from late March into mid April. But sometimes lupine and rabbitbrush can keep flowering just into summer.
