    I will be in the Tucson, AZ area for four days March 20-22. The purpose for going is to shoot wildflowers. I moved out of tucson before starting photography and am at a loss for locations. Since there really is not a lot of time for scouting I am asking for pointers. Any location help would be great.

    I know where I want to go for BW it is the color wild flower pictures that escape me.

    The Sonora Desert Museum is a pretty cool place. It has been several years since I have been there but I recall that desert blooms were part of the experience... at the very least it would be a cool stop. Also you will pass through or near to Saguaro National Monument on the way out there. Another awesome place.

    good luck,
