Southwest Trekking provides professional custom hiking and mountain biking tours with transportation and outdoor education!


Stunnig colors appear as summer rain triggers amazing cacti flowers of all kinds!

Pictured above is a cholla cactus with a brilliant purple flower, however cholla blooms vary in color adding to the splendor!

The fishhook barrel tends tends to bloom a crown of beautiful flowers all at once that also can range in color spectrums. This beauty is often referred to as the “compass cactus” because larger barrels tend to lean Southwest! (That could be handy)

Arizona Poppy (Kallstroemia grandiflora)

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

The “Arizona poppy” is also known as “summer poppy” and “orange caltrop”. Its orange flowers resemble the orange flowers of the California poppy, and it blooms from mid-summer to October in Arizona!

There five-petaled, three quarter to one and one-half-inch wide flowers rise above the plant.  Petals have numerous nectar guides, are able to reflect ultraviolet light and just like many of our Arizona blooms they only remain open for one day.

Enjoy a guided hike or mountain bike ride thru this beautiful desert landscape with Southwest Trekking.
