Morning on CBS - The 50 - Year Bloom
of what we've learned from years of Sunday Morning adventures
applies to our work with people in one way or another. The
nature closing segments on the show usually feature wildlife.
But we've learned to look beyond the birds, bees and mammals
for the shots that might not reveal themselves right away.
Over the years we've captured melting snow, waterfalls,
blowing grasses - and in the spring of 2001 - a spectacular
show of wildflowers in the Sonoran desert.
were brilliant patches of color on Picacho Peak, between
Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona. Because of recent weather patterns,
including a wet winter, many biologists are calling 2001
the "50 - year bloom." At dawn, we hiked into the hills
and found Coulter's Lupine, Great Desert Poppies, Mexican
Gold Poppies, and Spectacle Pod. Who says you can't find
beauty in the desert!
