Desert Pincushions in Indian Valley.




Hedgehog Cactus blooms along the trail towards Inner Pasture




Desert Dandelions in Indian Valley




Desert Dandelions are part of the Sunflower family




Amazing that a cactus as formidable looking as the Hedgehog can produce such a beautiful flower




The Barrel Cactus blooms were still showing




The Ocotillo plants have been in bloom for a couple months out in the southern parts of Anza Borrego




This snake I believe is called a Red Racer and while not poisonous will take a bite out of you if provoked.




More Hedgehog Blooms just over a small ridge in Indian Valley




Red Racer snake in the Anza Borrego Desert




This Red Racer seemed content to just lie in the wash with his head in the shade.




Beavertail Cactus Blooms




Small Fishhook Cactus with a wreath of small flowers

In case you can't tell the Desert Dandelions are my favorite wildflowers in Anza Borrego

The petals of the Desert Dandelion only grow to 3/4" long but in numbers completely change the desert landscape to a brilliant pale yellow.




Large den that we figured was home to a kit fox
