Anza Borrego Desert State Park
In March, 2017,the wild flowers were lighting up the park in ways even the pictures can’t show.
We went on a rocky, unpaved road, leaving a trail of dust behind us, going what looked like nowhere. We left other flower gazers behind to see the occotillo in bloom. Just as we thought we took the wrong road, we saw a beautiful field of blooming occotillo. Gorgeous!!!
Stay for the beautiful sunsets!
Carrizo Plain National Monument
Another long dirt road led to a fabulous field of sunflowers.
Although Spring 2017 was a super bloom that could actually be seen from space, every spring in the desert is a beautiful thing. Deserts are alive with flowers after the winter rains and worth a visit each Spring. Check the websites : Anza Borrego Desert State Park; and Carrizo Plain National Monument. You won’t be disappointed.
