Tvpical aster family flowers follow the familiar "composite" pattern of daisies, "
composed" of two kinds of flowers. Pull off a "petal" and you discover it's an
individual blossom; even without a hand lens, you can see the minute bloom
hidden in the incurled base of each ray. In the disk, tiny tubular flowers pack
close together, their spiral growth pattern following the Fibonacci number
sequence. Broom snakeweed, ubiquitous in the canyon, bears dozens of shirt-
button-size yellow daisies ...

Above us, some ordinary-looking white daisies droop from a hanging garden. On
closer inspection, though, these are rare kachina daisies, or fleabane. The
Dolores Canyon is one of the few places where kachina daisies grow in
Colorado. They're also uncommon in Utah, where botanist Stanley Welch
discovered them near Kachina Bridge in Natural Bridges National Monument. Of
the many reasons why a plant becomes rare, the most common is specialization.

A sense of desolation, deeper than any canyon she'd ever stared into, threatened
to topple her. If Tom's claim was true, her mother had abandoned her without so
much as a word. And nine years had passed without even a letter. Why? How
could she do that to her own child? Steven steadied her with a firm hand. “Why
don't you sit on the porch?” He indicated one of the chairs. She gazed up into his
warm eyes and slowly shook her head. “Thank you. I'm fine now. A little dizzy for

“That's Brody, one of my many annoying siblings,” Annabel said with a grin.
Thomas nodded and acknowledged the younger man he guessed to be in his
early twenties with a wave. The flowers started to slip from his grip but then he
realized Annabel had reached for them. He released his hold on the bouquet, but
held tight to the bottle of wine. “Oh, aren't these pretty!” She buried her nose in the
fragrant stems. “Yellow roses, white mums and my favorites, daisies.” A whisper
of unease ...

"Well, sir," he said, "down in Paly Duro Canyon— you know where that is down in
Injun Territory? Well, sir, it was over sixty feet deep. Old Captain Painter thought
he'd lost his whole herd— about 2000 head. Fretted and stewed about it all the
rest of the winter. Jest afore the first thaw, Captain Painter rode out . . . lookin' fer '

canyon. Them Texas steers [had to be Texas steers] had plowed tunnels a mile

The Colorado River cut the Grand Canyon into the earth like floodwaters cut into
these sandstone canyons.” Mia glances at Michelle, then grins at me. “I'm gonna
picture us rafting down a river of daisies.” I try to go with that image, but there's
noise in my head. Noise telling me that we're walking upstream, not down. Noise
telling me there's no such thing as a river of daisies. Besides, even I know these
aren't daisies. They're low to the ground. And the petals look rough, not smooth.

The mountains parted and I saw the canyon. When the guitar cut loose and the
timbales crashed into vibrating wood, I was met by an angry crowd and elected
prince. I ruled for two centuries, until they found me perfectly bound and
preserved at the most popular tourist bar in Santa Fe.When his guitar shouted
from atop the pyramid, I was taught by sound and the riot police. It was near the
end of the song and I had seconds to pull the cottonwood tree out of my nose and
plant it on the ...
