Some amazing shots, wish I could have been there to see it!  Nothing like a wet year to bring them out.
temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water

How is the bloom currently? Will be in the park next week and I'm hoping the bluebonnets can hold on for another week!

As of this past Sunday (3/17) the blooms were still great. Best I've ever seen in the 13 years going to the park.
