Anza Borrego Wildflower Season 2010

by surfponto 8. February 2010 20:16

It looks to be a great year for wildflowers out in the Anza Borrego desert due to the record rains we had in January.

We are planning on heading out this coming Valentine's weekend to scout out some areas. From what I have been reading, late February into mid March will be the peak, so make your plans to head on out. This year I am extra excited since we finally picked up a decent camera. Hopefully you will be able to tell by the new pictures we upload.

I am hoping to report back Monday so check back.  For now enjoy these pictures from our previous flower hunting trips.

Anza-Borrego Desert State Park has a wildflower hotline for Anza Borrego, (760) 767-4684. Updates will begin when the flowers start to bloom.

If you want to become an expert on the various wildflowers in the Anza Borrego Desert or just interested in learning more, I recommend the field guide Desert Wildflowers of the Sonoran Desert. If this guide doesn't have it, it probably does not exist. Smile
