I arrive at the Woods Wash Wilderness boundary, stash my bicycle behind a bush and convert from biker to hiker

I pass a field of orange desert mallow flowers on lower Wild Horse Canyon Road
I saw a lot of desert mallow flowers yesterday as well while riding across Gold Valley. I don't think I've ever seen so many. I don't know if there are more this year due to the late-spring rains, or if my past visits simply haven't been timed right.
