    Good summer rains have produced a massive wildflower bloom in the Bandelier National Monument’s high country that should last for at least several more weeks. https://losalamosreporter.com/2021/07/26/bandelier-extends-visitor-center-hours-while-high-country-hikes-offer-abundant-wildflowers/
    Abundant moisture in the parks high country has created the perfect conditions for a wildflower bonanza. Hiking trails such as Cerro Grande and Alamo Boundary are the best places to see a wide assortment of moisture loving blooms including mariposa lilies, harebells, and shooting stars.
