The recent rains are greening the spike-mosses (aka Resurrection Plants) in Sabino Canyon. There are two species: Arizona Spike-Moss (Selaginella arizonica) and Rock-loving Spike-Moss (Selaginella rupincola). Both can be found in abundance on the Bluff Trail.
Great map of the lower canyon trails here!
